North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has entered a three-year partnership with Charlotte-based Direct ChassisLink Inc. (DCLI), the nation’s largest supplier of marine and domestic container chassis, to provide scholarship support, internship and other opportunities to the Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics.

“The Deese College is excited to partner with DCLI as we work to develop relationships with strong and growing companies in North Carolina,” said Kevin James, Ph.D., Deese College dean. “We look forward to working together to continually enhance student development and access to great business careers.”

DCLI’s three-year commitment will provide scholarships and on-the-job experience to students who are studying economics, accounting, finance or supply chain management, with the potential for full-time employment at DCLI upon graduation.

DCLI also expects to bring its professionals into the classroom to enhance student learning, as well as to support student organizations related to the economics, accounting, finance and supply chain management disciplines.

“DCLI is excited to launch this partnership with North Carolina A&T State University,” said Lee Newitt, DCLI president. The school has a rich history here in North Carolina and we believe this partnership will help attract new talent to our growing organization, while also strengthening our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
