COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - In a partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration, Benedict College will launch its women’s business center.

“This is an historic moment for our Benedict College as we will be one of only two HBCUs in the nation to house a Women Business Center (WBC) on our campus; and the only one to offer state-wide services,” said Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, President and CEO of Benedict College. “The launch of the Benedict College WBC is a logical extension of Benedict College’s steadfast commitment to stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship in underserved communities by supporting and growing women and minority-owned businesses.”

Mayor Steve Benjamin, Rep. James Clyburn, and Jovia Carranza, the 26th administrator of the Small Business Administration, were among the speakers at Wednesday’s opening event.
