Historically Black Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis Partners With a Community College

Historically Black Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis has entered into a partnership with St. Charles Community College to create a joint admissions program for area students. This is the first such agreement between a community college and a Historically Black College and University in Missouri. 

St. Charles Community College, located in Cottleville, Missouri, enrolls nearly 6,400 students, according to the latest data supplied by the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 7 percent of the student body.

The new partnership will allow St. Charles Community College and Harris-Stowe State University to jointly recruit students into a special program shared between the institutions. Student participants will have student privileges at both institutions, allowing them to participate in campus activities and take advantage of campus resources on both campuses 

Students will have broader access to scholarships, faculty, and credit pathways. Additionally, the two educational institutions will have the opportunity to engage in a faculty exchange program, as well as joint professional development opportunities.  

Harris-Stowe State University President, Corey S. Bradford stated that “we are creating an easier pathway for students to be successful. Our goal is to increase affordability, access, and student success. We are reimaging the student transfer experience to make it seamless, collaborative, and more efficient.”
