Shaw University to Expand Its Presence to Research Triangle Park

Historically Black Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, will expand its campus and presence to Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. A new collaboration between the university and the Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina will provide Shaw University with a tangible presence in the heart of Research Triangle Park, opening up new avenues for growth and development.

The collaboration will secure Shaw University a dedicated office space within Frontier RTP innovation campus, located in the heart of the city’s new vibrant downtown area. The space within the Frontier RTP 800 Building will include private offices and an administrative area dedicated to Shaw University, as well as classroom space shared within the premises. Additionally, Shaw University will have access to the common areas of the associated buildings, which include state-of-the-art conference rooms, a collaborative co-working space, and additional event spaces to advance several initiatives.

Dr. Paulette Dillard, president of Shaw University, said: “The partnership with RTP provides Shaw with proximity; proximity to cutting-edge companies; proximity to business leaders; and proximity to success. With Shaw now having a dedicated space in RTP, the university can host educational seminars for Park tenants and job fairs for our students. Shaw will be at the front door for opportunities with RTP companies looking for students for internships and jobs, thus building another pipeline for diverse talent in the region.”
