NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Bank of America is contributing $1 million in a partnership with Tennessee State University to help students finish college and find employment.

The university said in a news release that the bank recently committed $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity and $25 million for skills improvement for African Americans and Hispanic-Latino students.

Bank of America’s nationwide initiative includes partnerships with nearly two dozen community colleges that predominantly serve Black and Hispanic-Latino students, public Historically Black Colleges and Universities and public Hispanic-Serving Institutions.
