Apple Helps Black College Students Thrive in STEM Settings

Apple is expanding its partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by adding 10 HBCU regional coding centers. They will serve as technology hubs for their campuses and broader communities, including K–12 schools and local governments. Part of Apple’s Community Education Initiative, which now has 24 locations across the U.S., this effort is “designed to bring coding, creativity, and workforce development opportunities to learners of all ages.” The centers will use Apple’s Everyone Can Code and Everyone Can Create curricula to encourage coding and app design.

“Apple is committed to working alongside communities of color to advance educational equity,” says Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of environment, policy and social initiatives. “We see this expansion of our Community Education Initiative and partnership with HBCUs as another step toward helping Black students realize their dreams and solve the problems of tomorrow.”
