DSU Recieves $1Mil. Investment from Barclays

DOVER, Del. – Delaware State University has received a 1 million dollar investment from Barclays bank to further their Global Institute for Equity, Inclusion, and Civil Rights.

The big check comes at the 1-year anniversary of the partnership between the bank and school to help combat issues of racial justice, and fund the growth and prosperity of black communities. Those efforts will be made using case studies, market data, and lived experiences. DSU Business School’s President tells us he’s thrilled to have a partner like Barclays in this effort.

“The partnership with Barclays and funding they provide is critical to our ability to both garner the knowledge necessary to make the change but also to deploy the knowledge base and the expertise to areas that are in need the most,” said DSU Purdue School of Business Dean Dr. Michael Casson.

He tells us, student learning is just half of the challenge, he hopes students will be able to use the “intellectual capital” of Barclays to get the insight and learning they need to go out and affect change.
