Office of HBCU Outreach Strategic Plan
is the N.C. Department of Transportation’s roadmap to address today’s
needs and projected trends in transportation while supporting the
advancement of historically black colleges and universities and
minority-serving institutions through clearly defined priorities, goals
The plan provides the N.C. Department of Transportation with direction based on thoughtful feedback from key stakeholders, coupled with institutional knowledge, industry best practices and a strong view of the future.
Transformational change is often difficult to embrace, always a challenge to implement and requires an uncommon level of dedication and commitment. When it’s delivered, however, the results are extraordinary and always affect deep, positive outcomes.
With a fresh perspective, new mission and vision, as well as strong partnership and sense of urgency, the work will be perfectly positioned to have an impact on HBCUs/MSIs in a meaningful way through preparation, inclusion and opportunity.
