Southern University Is the Pilot Institution for the CIA’s HBCU Recruitment and Workforce Initiative (915 hits)



The Southern University System and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have entered into a partnership that will offer opportunities for both students and faculty. The CIA has chosen Southern University as the pilot institution for the agency’s White House Initiative on HBCUs Recruitment and Workforce Development Program.

The agreement allows the CIA to engage in a broad range of classroom workshops, curriculum development, and recruitment activities to foster ongoing relationships with key university staff and personnel on Southern’s five campuses. This participation in campus life will provide the intelligence agency contact with a qualified and diverse applicant pool.

“Southern University is honored to have been chosen as the first institution to partner with the CIA for this initiative,” said Ray Belton, president of the Southern University System. “The reputable stature of the CIA alone is an asset to the university, students, and faculty, and we believe that the outcomes will be mutually beneficial for all involved.

“For nearly 140 years, Southern has been a leader in innovation and scholarship. This opportunity with the CIA adds to our extensive portfolio of public and private partnerships that allow our students and faculty to expand their knowledge and to enhance their technical skills.”
The Southern University System is comprised of Southern University Baton Rouge, Southern University New Orleans, Southern University Shreveport, Southern University Law Center, and Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center.
