FAMU students help build a more diverse Google


Florida A&M University has been invited to join Google’s new Tech Exchange program, growing diversity and representation in technology by offering yearlong residencies to computer science students at select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs).

Five FAMU students are now studying at Google’s Silicon Valley campus, taking applied computer science courses and being mentored by Google employees.

“The need for tech employees from diverse backgrounds is critical to the development of products and processes that will benefit all in our society,” said Dr. Sonya Stephens, associate dean of FAMU’s College of Science and Technology.
