Googleplex has just announced a campus at Howard University


The company unveiled a new partnership with Howard University, which will allow colorful engineering software from "historic colleges and universities," better known as HBCUs, to study in a new program on Google's campus, which they call "Howard West."

The program will open this summer, although at first it will be open only to Howard University students. Google, however, hopes to bring pupils from other schools soon.

Newcomers and older people who want to join the computer science program at Howard can apply. Those who succeed to join will be transferred to California for a three-month term where they will learn from Google's engineers as well as from their own professors.


"Howard West will create hundreds of colorful computer science graduates, future leaders, with the power to transform the world of technology into a more powerful, more accurate image of the world around us," said Howard University President, Wayne Frederick.

Frederick has great hopes for students at his university but he also hopes the program will spark the interest of the technology industry and other leaders of thought around the importance of diversity in the businesses and communities they serve.

Color workers account for 2% of Google's total workforce, according to data released by the company. 59% are white, 32% of Asian origin, 3% of two or more breeds, and the other 3% Hispanic.
