Filed in HBCUs on December 4, 2015
Voorhees College and Denmark Technical College, two historically Black educational institutions in Denmark, South Carolina, have signed an articulation agreement. Under the new partnership, students who earn an associate’s degree at Denmark Technical College will be able to seamlessly transfer their credits and enroll at Voorhees College as a junior to work toward their bachelor’s degree.
Cleveland Sellers, president of Voorhees College noted that the agreement will be a win-win situation for both institutions. “In today’s society, it is pertinent that students obtain a higher education if they want to survive in this competitive workforce,” said Dr. Sellers. “This agreement will allow Denmark Tech students to continue their education toward receiving a bachelor’s degree, and it will assist Voorhees with increasing our student enrollment.”
Leonard McIntyre, president of Denmark Technical College, added, “This articulation agreement between Denmark Technical College and Voorhees allows us to fulfill our mission and uplift the community by educating citizens of our service area and enhancing their quality of life.”
