Denmark Technical College added to Thurgood Marshall College Fund membership

Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has added Denmark Technical College to its member schools, now totaling 54 institutions consisting of historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), predominantly Black institutions and Historically Black Community Colleges. Denmark Tech is the first of its kind among TMCF members. 

“It is an honor to welcome Denmark Technical College to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund membership. Its unique role as the sole two-year HBCU in South Carolina makes its contributions to the state’s economic growth particularly noteworthy,” Dr. Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of TMCF, said. “We look forward to a partnership that benefits their students through scholarshipsinternshipsmentoring and more, helping mold graduates that are capable, competitive, creative, and inventive.”

TMCF began adding HBCCs in June 2023, which reflects the organization’s belief that diversity, equity and inclusion efforts include alternative pathways to degree attainment and skill development. HBCCs play a critical role in local and regional economic development by offering upskilling and reskilling programs. 

“Denmark Technical College is elated to have the distinguished honor of being among the ranks of the newest crop of Thurgood Marshall College Fund member schools. The groundbreaking work of the TMCF has a lasting impact on the students and colleges they serve. Their intentional inclusive strategy to embrace two-year HBCUs in their membership is a testament to their progressive administration,” Dr. Willie L. Todd Jr., president and CEO of Denmark Technical College, said. “This is a game-changer, and I cannot wait to see the profound effect this partnership will have on our community, faculty, staff, and, most importantly, our students.”
