Google invests in HBCUs

Reported by Education Dive, Google has launched a million dollar digital skills training initiative with 20 historically black colleges and universities.

The semester-long digital training program is designed to help students, especially first-generation students, navigate the nuances of corporate America.

The takeaway? This Grow with Google HBCU Career Readiness Program is part of Google’s recent $15 million dollar pledge to offer skills training to Black workers, in addition to three combined gifts of $100 million dollars or more from other companies to HBCUs this year.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
