May 12, 2021

Nissan is again making a donation to Mississippi’s seven Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programming at each school.

“Students pursuing STEM-related degrees have a broad range of career opportunities,” said Keri Kelly, director, Diversity & Inclusion, Nissan Americas. “Mississippi’s seven HBCUs are preparing the change makers of tomorrow to take on the STEM roles that will undoubtedly change lives for the better. Nissan is thrilled to lend support to further develop and strengthen these programs.”

With this contribution, Nissan has invested nearly $1.5 million in Mississippi’s HBCUs since opening its Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant in 2003. The Canton plant produces the Nissan Altima, Frontier, TITAN and NV van.
