Regions Financial Enters Partnership Deal With Six HBCUs

Regions Financial Corporation, which operates 1,700 bank branches in 16 states in the South and Midwest, has entered into a partnership with six historically Black colleges and universities.  The Regions HBCU Partnership includes Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University, Florida A&M University, Jackson State University, Spelman College, and Tennessee State University.

Under the program, the bank will help establish a financial education curriculum at the partnering institutions. Regions Financial will mentor students and recruit students and graduates for employment and internship positions. An executive lecture series will be established with business schools at participating partner institutions.

Regions Financial has other partnerships with the United Negro College Fund, the National Urban League, and the National Black MBA Association. It is also the official bank of the Magic City Classic, a football game between HBCUs in Birmingham, Alabama.

The plan is for more HBCUs to join the partnership in the years ahead.
