Black Colleges and University of California Partnership Welcomes Class of 2013

Black news from Pasadena - News - Black Colleges and University of California PartnershipFifty students from predominately Historical Black Colleges and Universities were welcomed to the UCLA campus to begin their summer Institute for emerging managers and leaders.

The students will spend two weeks at UCLA, from June 30, through July 13, 2013, as part of a career–building experience in business.

The students represent the second year for this unique opportunity, and this year includes students from Hispanic serving institutions. They will be taught by a staff of world class UCLA Anderson School of Business instructors.

The program represents a commitment to diversity and innovation in approaches to higher education.

This program is a product of a vision of Journal publisher Joe C. Hopkins to create more educational opportunities for African American students. The idea was promoted by then Assemblyman Anthony Portantino who served as the head of the Assembly's education committee.

Black news from Pasadena - News - Black Colleges and University of California PartnershipThe first year in Summer Institute, in 2012, was held at the University of California at Berkley. The student body represents students from schools as diverse as Spelman, Morehouse, Benedict, Bennett, Morgan State, Howard, and Wiley in Texas.

It is hoped that the exposure to the University of California will encourage many of the students to return to the University of California for MBA's and other educational opportunities.

The students are primarily Freshman and Sophomores.
