Southern Plains Transportation Center Announces

2014 Summer Internship Program
Transportation Regional Internship Program (TRIP) 

Background: As a Regional University Transportation Center (UTC), the Southern Plains Transportation Center (SPTC) is committed to strengthening the UTC program’s legacy of invaluable contributions to transportation education and workforce development by executing a comprehensive strategy keyed to the complimentary life-long learning themes of higher education, professional development, encouraging new ideas and new entrants to the profession, as well as K-12 outreach. This cradle-to-grave approach is particularly relevant in Region 6. The region’s underrepresented groups – Hispanic, African-American, Native American and women – are best served by early intervention, targeted higher education, and continuing education. An important element of SPTC’s workforce development effort is the Transportation Regional Internship Program (TRIP).
