Benedict College Modernizes Campus

(ENSPIRE Community Spotlight) MD Energy Advisors and Siemens Team Up To Assist College Campus Community

ENSPIRE Contributor: Gabrielle Maya 

Benedict College is a private historically Black college and university (HBCU) that is a co-educational liberal arts institution. Benedict College was ranked as one of the top baccalaureate colleges in the nation by Washington Monthly magazine for creating social mobility and producing cutting-edge scholarship and research. In 2019, Benedict College received the 2019 ACE/ Fidelity Investments Awards for Institutional Transformation and was named the HBCU of the Year by HBCU Digest. As of now, Benedict College will receive a new makeover. MD Energy Advisors (MDEA) and Siemens recently partnered to support campus modernization initiatives for this institution. 

Part of this initiative is through support, cleanliness, comfort, and an environment good for current and prospective students. These organizations are making a collaborative effort since 2021 to outline high-quality academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular programming, intentionally designed to develop superior cultural and professional competencies for a diverse student body. MDEA is helping through utility and financing energy solutions. Paul Clary is the co-founder of MDEA and is a huge supporter of HBCUs. According to Clary, “As a HBCU graduate, this collaboration and project mean so much to me and the entire team at MD Energy Advisors.

We look forward to witnessing firsthand the impact these modernization initiatives have on the current student body and faculty and prospective students for years to come.” Siemens will focus on infrastructure, healthcare, and transportation. According to Michele Mitch-Peterson, Account Executive, Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA, “It was our honor to serve as an ally to the team at Benedict College to support this initiative.” 

ENSPIRE had the pleasure of interviewing Co-Founder of MD Energy Advisors, Paul Clary, Energy Transformation Executive of Siemens, Michele Mitch-Peterson, and President & CEO of Benedict College, Roslyn Clark Artis, to discuss the improvements being made at Benedict College for the school environment.
