Saint Augustine’s University Teams Up With Wayne County Community College in Detroit

Historically Black Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, North Carolina, has entered into a partnership with the Wayne County Community College District in Detroit to allow community college students a seamless pathway to transfer to Saint Augustine’s to complete a bachelor’s degree.

Saint Augustine’s University will work with the community college district to develop strategies to provide students and graduates with the necessary information about program opportunities and requirements for transferring credits. In addition, an appointed staff member at each institution will publish and review transfer degree pathways and degree plans annually to ensure continued communication. Through these activities, the institutions will work simultaneously to modify their policies, procedures, etc., to accommodate the changing needs of their students.

“Our mission has always been to provide pathways to better lives through higher education,” said Curtis L. Ivery, chancellor of the Wayne County Community College District. “This articulation agreement is firmly within that mission and expands on our existing transfer programs and university partnerships to help more students obtain advanced degrees seamlessly.”

“The launching of our HBCU Urban Access Hubs ensures that we will no longer define ourselves through our traditional structures,” said Christine Johnson McPhail, president of Saint Augustine’s University. “This articulation agreement delivers our promise of providing year-long access to SAU by leveraging the kinship between two American inventions – community colleges and HBCUs.”
