Two HBCUs Sign Partnership Agreement With Manager of Nuclear Site in South Carolina

Claflin University and South Carolina State University, two historically Black educational institutions have signed a partnership agreement with Savannah River Nuclear Solutions. The Savannah River Site is one of the nation’s most important nuclear laboratories for both energy research and weapons production.

The agreement calls for opportunities for scholarships and pathways for employment that will be provided to qualifying students and for curriculum development and faculty engagement for the two universities. There will be internship opportunities for students in a wide range of potential careers involving business administration, operations, and STEM-based professions.

Under the agreement, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions professionals will make campus visits to both universities for resume-building workshops as well as interview skills development and career exploration sessions.

The partnership “will ensure students graduate with a high degree of confidence that they will be successful in obtaining the skills needed to qualify for jobs at SRNS,” said Stuart MacVean, president and CEO of Savannah River Nuclear Solutions. “That’s the goal we’re mutually pursuing.”
