Transdev, Xavier U. Launch Workforce Development Partnership

Transdev and La.’s Xavier University launched a partnership, which will give Xavier students access to the worldwide mobility company as a preferred employer of choice.

Transdev Regional Vice President Justin Augustine, who hails from New Orleans, is not only a Xavier graduate, but also serves as Chair of the Board of Trustees at Xavier University of Louisiana. “Xavier is my home. It’s a special place made up of extraordinary students. I am glad to see this partnership come to fruition. These students are capable of so many great things, and I am glad to see my two worlds converge. Through this partnership more opportunities will be provided to these students, as they begin to decide and develop their career paths and interests.”

The partnership will kick off focusing on three main components:

  • A summer internship program, where selected Xavier students will work across the Transdev organization to gain valuable corporate and project experience.
  • Xavier will host Transdev leaders to participate in a speaker series designed to educate students on career success.
  • Transdev will offer career counseling from members of the organization to students who have questions about their career paths and job searches.

“We are excited to enter into this partnership with Transdev, which will allow our talented Xavierites to explore the transportation industry, as it innovates mobility in a new energy economy,” said Dr. Reynold Verret, president of Xavier University of Louisiana. “We are grateful to Trustee Augustine, who mediated this alliance and understands as an alum the importance of reaching back and offering current students access to new opportunities and a chance to investigate potential career paths as they consider life after Xavier.”
