HBCUHacks is a series of weekend hackathons that provide students at HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) the opportunity to flex their coding, design, and business skills and work together to build software and mobile apps.
Historically black colleges & universities graduate approximately 20% all black students with computer science degrees every year, but diversity reports from the top tech companies continue to find that fewer than 5% of their workforce is black.
There are 106 historically black colleges and universities in the US, with a total enrollment of over 300,000 students. These institutions represent a good source to find and support talented black students interested in technology careers and entrepreneurship.
