WV Department of Homeland Security and Marshall University Unveil Joint Initiative to put Students into State Jobs


Charleston, W.Va. —  Marshall University President Brad D. Smith joined West Virginia Department of Homeland Security (WV DHS) Sec. Jeff Sandy yesterday, Jan. 24, to launch an initiative to put Marshall college students to work within the department’s agencies.  

Sandy said the program provides opportunity for cooperative synergy.
“We are excited to announce, here at the Fusion Center where we have many Marshall graduates working, that we are collaborating to provide eligible students with hands-on, paid learning opportunities while also filling open positions across our department,” Sandy said. “Working under the leadership of Gov. Jim Justice and working in concert with President Smith, we have developed an innovative program to place students into jobs and hopefully create career pathways to keep them here after graduation.”
