• Mississippi River Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Consortium℠

    The Mississippi River Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Consortium (MRTDL℠), led by Lewis and Clark Community College, consists of nine institutions spanning eight states along the Mississippi River Region: L&C in Godfrey, Illinois; Hinds Community College in Raymond, Mississippi; John Wood Community College in Quincy, Illinois; Mid-South Community College in West Memphis, Arkansas; Minnesota State College – Southeast Technical in Winona, Minnesota; St. Louis Community College in Bridgeton, Missouri; Southwest Tennessee Community College in Memphis, Tennessee; West Kentucky Community and Technical College in Paducah, Kentucky; and Delgado Community College in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Member colleges are committed to advancing economic development in the Mississippi River region, from the headwaters to the Gulf, and are dedicated to the placement of dislocated and other workers in high-wage, high-skill occupations in the vital transportation, distribution and logistics (TDL) and related industry sectors.

    The consortium is made possible through a grant from the Department of Labor's Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Community College and Careering Training grant program, a multi-year, nearly $2 billion initiative to expand targeted training programs for unemployed workers, especially those impacted by foreign trade.
