  • MSI are colleges and universities serving a large percentage of minority students. These institutions are unique in both their missions and in their day-to-day operations. Some are located in remote regions of the country, whereas others serve congested urban neighborhoods. Their constituents range from Native Americans, the country’s oldest residents, to Hispanic Americans, who count themselves among its most recent arrivals. Then Historically Black Colleges and Universities, otherwise known as HBCUs, have been striving for more than a century to give their constituents the social and educational skills needed to overcome discriminatory barriers and limited economic opportunities. Through executive orders and special legislation enacted over the past 20 years, the Federal government has helped focus national attention on the challenges facing MSI. These special initiatives have let MSI access Federal funds and leverage other resources on behalf of their students and communities.Presidential Executive Order 13230 Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans (195)Presidential Executive Order 13256 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (105)Presidential Executive Order 13270 Tribal Colleges and Universities (34)
  • Within RITA, we are seeking to strengthen the capacity of MSI’s to participate in federal programs such as the ones listed. There are a variety of federal programs either universities and/or their students can participate in. Currently we are compiling a list of those programs. To name a few we have the Summer Transportation Internship Program for Diverse Groups, the Dwight Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program, Presidential Management Fellows, and University Transportation Centers Program.  To date, the UTC Program has 5 MSIs identified as UTCs; however, there are several MSIs with transportation programs but do not hold the UTC designation. In response to the Executive Orders, we encourage the university community to reach out to existing MSIs with transportation program to not only develop new relationships but also strengthen existing ones.
  • Women’s Transportation Seminars focus is to advance women in transportation. There are approximately 39 chapters throughout the United States.  WTS is currently encouraging chapters to create a Transportation You Program in each chapter. The Transportation You program will provide hands-on interactive, mentoring program offering young girls ages 13 to 18 an introduction to transportation careers. WTS is also working with local schools, universities, and/or youth organizations to recruit new partners to hold programs and activities for girls. Next steps:Connect WTS chapters with universities having a transportation programEncouraging collaboration between WTS Transportation YOU and the Summer Transportation InstitutesHolding a Girls Youth Leadership Summit focusing on transportation careers
