Apprenticeship Comes to Campus

Tech industry workforce demographics reveal a need for increased diversity, and many employers express a desire to make their teams more diverse and inclusive.

This playbook from the Urban Institute outlines the apprenticeship model Urban helped develop between a consortium of South Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities and businesses. The program aims help students gain meaningful paid work experience while they advance toward a degree, link employers to a diverse and often-overlooked pool of promising talent, and serve as an example throughout the workforce and education systems for bridging the gap between the classroom and workplace.
