USHLI Signs MOU with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services invited USHLI to co-sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to the effect that USHLI would utilize its outreach capability to identify students of color interested in public service. There are thousands of important positions open in the federal government, offering a wide range of career opportunities. The signing ceremony was held at Malcolm X College in Chicago.

USHLI will use its ability to reach tens of thousands of students nationally throughout the year to encourage students pursuing degrees in a host of disciplines including health, human resources, social work, government, accounting, political science, media, communications, marketing, and many more, to consider public service as a career.

Signing on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services was Honorable Cheryl R. Campbell, Assistant Secretary for Administration, and President Dr. Juan Andrade, for USHLI.

Prior to signing the MOU, Assistant Secretary Campbell said, “The formalization of our relationship with the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute highlights our mutual commitment to promoting equitable access to healthcare, education, and career opportunities, particularly for individuals and families from underserved and underrepresented communities. It is through partnerships like ours that we can confront complex challenges, dismantle barriers to access, and effect enduring change.”

In his remarks, Dr. Andrade said, “We welcome this opportunity to be of service to the nation and this Administration, and most importantly to those young emerging leaders of color who will be entering public service.”
