Strayer University will soon offer a course dedicated to building the confidence and perseverance of the student body and they’ve enlisted the help of musician and award-winning actress Queen Latifah.
Queen Latifah, whose real name is Dana Owens, is teaming up with Strayer to provide students with an 11-week online course that helps to build the confidence needed to succeed in the real world. She will be featured in inspirational, educational, and motivational videos and students will also receive personal live Q&A sessions from Queen Latifah for their individual needs. How amazing is that?
“I’m thrilled to partner with Strayer University to help their students succeed,” she says. “Strayer has been helping busy working adults go back to school for over 125 years and I’m honored to add to that legacy and support the students who are working so hard to further their careers.”
The President of Strayer University, Brian Jones provides an explanation as to why collaborating with Queen Latifah was the right choice, saying “Queen Latifah embodies many of the qualities we work to instill in our students to help them be successful in college and their careers including confidence, an entrepreneurial spirit, and persistence. We’re absolutely thrilled to have her join Strayer on our mission to help adult students succeed.”
Earlier this month, Latifah received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree at the Rutgers University − Newark Commencement Ceremony. She will also be Strayer University’s commencement speaker on June 23, according to Vibe.
