WASHINGTON  – Assistant Democratic Leader and Sixth District Congressman James E. Clyburn will be the keynote speaker at the Historically Black College and Universities (HBCU) Entrepreneurship Conference hosted by Alabama State University on March 7 in Montgomery, Ala.

“America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities are the key to economic recovery, innovation and entrepreneurship in many of our communities,” said Leader Clyburn.  “I am proud to be a part of this conference to help businesses and individuals find creative ways to be a part of America’s recovery through science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

 

The goals of the conference are to enable attendees the opportunity to learn about business development, entrepreneurship, grants, contracting and fellowships, with a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  

 

The leadership team at ASU said they are excited to have the Assistant Democratic Leader visit their campus and address its first annual entrepreneurship conference.

 

“Congressman Clyburn’s support of higher education with a particular emphasis on science investigation and mathematics programs has resonated with people from across the country, and we look forward to him bringing his message to Alabama State University and to all of our conference participants,” said Dr. William H. Harris, president of the University.

 

Harris added that as a national leader, Clyburn has worked to respond to the needs of America’s diverse communities, has championed rural communities by supporting the development of regional water projects, community health centers, broadband connections, and has led the effort to gain nationwide support for higher education.

 

Conference officials state that the event will provide information to its attendees that can improve corporate and higher education partnerships, significantly affect the growth of HBCU’s and enhance regional economic development opportunities. They anticipate more than 300 attendees, which includes participants from federal, state and local agencies, corporations, small businesses, colleges and the public.
