Netflix partnering with HBCU for tuition-free coding boot camps

Netflix is partnering with an HBCU to provide tuition-free technology boot camps.

Reported by Education Dive, Netflix is launching and fully funding three technology boot camps with Norfolk State University, including Java Engineering, UX/UI Design, and Data Science program tracks. Netflix’s stated goal is to solve the underrepresentation problem in the tech industry. And in doing so, they also create their own employee feeder program.

The takeaway? This is a huge win for Norfolk State and their students. How can we create similar partnerships with employers, willing to fund similar programs in order to be first in line to hire our graduates?

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