Cal State Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley announced Thursday that the university would be entering into two new partnerships this year that could impact graduate students and the city’s ability to attract tech entrepreneurs.

The university will begin its first College Promise fellowship, an addition to its participation in the Long Beach College Promise which guarantees admission to area students who meet certain qualifications, this fall.

Conoley said the fellowship will try to help local businesses identify and retain local talent while simultaneously helping students with job placement after graduation.

“The new phase of the College Promise will match fellows from the university’s college of liberal arts with local companies, provide training and create an ongoing network of workforce development resources to make sure our College Promise will someday take Long Beach students from cradle to career,” Conoley said at the beginning of the Long Beach Regional Economic Forum Thursday morning at the Long Beach Convention Center.
