The Urban Institute is partnering with South Carolina State University to build a consortium of neighboring historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) offering apprenticeship as a career pathway into cybersecurity and information technology careers. Apprenticeship is a joint college and employer partnership with the computer science departments of the HBCUs providing classroom instruction and local technology employers delivering on-the-job training and mentoring. This fact sheet explains more about the various roles and responsibilities of the key players in this program model and shows how a degree-based apprenticeship program could benefit students at your own institution.
