The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce joined Delaware State University in holding a Nov. 9 ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new DSU Training and Technology Center, which will serve Central Delaware and beyond as a technology-enhanced site for training and workshops.

DSU President Harry L. Williams and Judy Diogo, CDCC president, cut the ribbon.

The center, located on the seventh floor of the University’s Living and Learning Commons facility just north of the main campus on North DuPont Highway, will provide a place for technology-focused workshops, company retreats, tailored corporate training, IT certification trainings and student learning sessions.

Barclays Bank provided grants totaling $400,000, which enabled the university to transform the space into a state-of- the-art training and workshop area. The center is outfitted with Apple television screens, MacBook Pros, Galaxy A Tablets, 60-inch Smart HDTVs, configurable and personal whiteboards in an expanse that can be divided into breakout areas.

The primary focuses of the DTTC will be technical skill development in the areas of software language, innovative business technologies and tool suite training; community enrichment through technology skills training; and employment development through technology portfolio development, networking, resume writing and career search skills.
