Norfolk State University

With a mission to transform students’ lives, Norfolk State University is committed to empowering students to turn aspirations into reality. To advance that mission, they’re partnering with us and Netflix to empower their students to become leaders in tech.

Realizing the potential.

As a proud historically Black university, Norfolk is dedicated to the care and advancement of their students. Their values of excellence, diversity, and inclusiveness are echoed in their commitment to accelerate the careers of the next generation of Black tech leaders.

In the Netflix Virtual HBCU Boot Camp, students at Norfolk will experience a holistic, high-quality, and relevant learning experience, gaining industry-relevant tech skills, engaging in one-on-one mentorship opportunities with Netflix’s engineering, data, and UX/UI teams, and benefiting from career and support services from 2U.

We’re thrilled to bring opportunities that can help students break into tech, a top industry for job seekers and one that sorely lacks Black talent.
