CAU will become a community center for Coding and Creativity as part of Apple’s Community Education Initiative and Tennessee State University’s HBCU C2. This initiative between the two institutions is designed to empower historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to expand technology and creativity experiences within their institutions and broader communities.
“We continue to move with momentum to ensure our scholars at Clark Atlanta University have access to a world-class education and that mission includes offering initiatives that focus on technology and enhancing their analytical thinking skills,” said Clark Atlanta University President George T. French Jr. in a written statement. “We want our students to exercise their creativity, be competitive in the world of technology, and be included in the technology career pipeline. Initiatives such as this brings them one step closer to that goal.”
