Norfolk Southern Recognized as a Top Supporter of HBCU Engineering Programs

Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC) has been identified as one of the companies most supportive of historically black engineering colleges and universities, according to a new survey in U.S. Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine.

Norfolk Southern joins 66 other U.S. companies, based on a survey of the deans of 11 higher-education engineering programs and the Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) corporate academic alliance. This is the second time Norfolk Southern has been recognized.

The survey, now in its fifth year, evaluated the following factors: support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research, participation on advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, co-ops and career opportunities.

Norfolk Southern is committed to attracting the best talent to our company,” said Cindy Earhart, NS vice president human resources. “We are proud of the strong recruiting partnerships we have built with these outstanding schools, and we look forward to strengthening them in the future.”
