The North Carolina Department of Transportation hired DWA to create a five-year strategic plan for its Historically Black Colleges & Universities Outreach Initiative. The five-year plan will be used as a roadmap through clearly defined priorities, goals, and objectives that support the advancement of HBCUs, as well as align with NCDOT’s mission. The plan was approved by Governor Roy Cooper and DWA is collaborating with the NCDOT HBCU Outreach Office to launch the implementation phase of the Strategic Plan in July 2018.
