Underrepresented students face a barrier to entry in tech, an industry often made up of a narrow, less-than-diverse set of employees. Overcoming that barrier begins with colleges and universities graduating more diverse students with exceptional coding skills.
Montgomery County Community College (Montco) partnered with Tutor.com to increase success for these students.
The college increased the proportion of students obtaining better grades, persisting, and ultimately graduating with a strong coding skill set so that they could more successfully compete for jobs in tech. (See case study handouts at right for more information.)
