06/28/2014 | 06:26am US/Eastern

WASHINGTON, June 27 -- Howard University issued the following news release:

The Howard University Center for Excellence in Supply Chain Management has partnered with Chrysler Group and Arizona State University (ASU) to launch the Supply Chain Management Leadership Exchange & Internship Program (LEIP) for the 2014-2015 school year.

LEIP's inaugural efforts will allow four students -- two from Howard and two from ASU -- to collaborate on a project during a summer internship in Chrysler's chain supply management division. The participating Howard University students are Maya McWhorter and Shavaunna Hodges, have already begun their summer internships with Chrysler.

In the fall, the students will continue working on their projects from their opposite home universities, with McWhorter and Hodges studying to ASU while the ASU students heading to Howard for a semester. Chrysler is providing scholarships to cover the student's costs and living expenses during the exchange.

"Supply chain has emerged as a key strategic discipline in the last few years because of what we've been through," said Eric Williams, associate director of the Center for Excellence in Supply Chain Management at Howard University School of Business. "The companies that do a really good job of partnering with a small number of universities and going deep with them are doing better at attracting talent."
