For the second year in a row, University of the West was honored with a Grant from Wells Fargo Bank as one of its 2016 community non-profit partner organizations.  UWest is honored to be the recipient of this grant both in 2015 and 2016, as nominated by Wells Fargo-Rosemead Branch.

Professor Meskerem Tadesse, Director of the UWest Center for the Study of Minority and Small Business (CSMSB) and full-time faculty in the Business Administration Department, received the Award on behalf of the University of the West at the  Annual Wells Fargo  Bank’s “Community Connection Breakfast” held in Pasadena in October.

Wells Fargo-Rosemead is located within a walking distance from the UWest main campus, providing banking services to our students as well as staff and faculty.

Recognizing the importance of this partnership, Wells Fargo-Rosemead and the UWest Center for Minority & Small Business (CSMSB) continue to work together to optimize our respective service to the community in which we reside.  To this end, Wells Fargo-Rosemead has partnered with the UWest Center for Minority and Small Business by sponsoring the “UWest MINORITY AND SMALL BUSINESS REVIEW”—an annual publication that provides a collection of relevant and practical business articles designed to inform and educate area small businesses.

Our institutions will continue to work together as we strive to educate and serve our community.  .
