Companies on Campus

Companies on Campus

Education is under attack. From reduced spending and budget cuts to overcrowding and a lack of funds, schools are struggling more than ever. However, some of the largest companies in the world have taken notice, and are standing up for education, giving students new opportunities to expand their educational horizons. http://www.bestmastersprograms.org/ has created an infographic entitled “Companies on Campus”, listing how some of the biggest companies in the world are putting up their dukes, fighting for our kids.
HP has started a program called HP Catalyst Initiative, which brings educators, businesses and scientists together to develop more effective approaches to STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. National Semiconductor also offers teachers free materials for math and science experiments. These programs also rewards teachers for their hard work, such as HP’s grant program, which gives teachers recognized for going above and beyond a $40,000 grant to continue their work. Microsoft has joined in by offering low-cost software solutions and computers to schools, along with starting a program called DigiGirlz, aimed at getting girls interested in a career in technology.
Additionally, Facebook recently awarded a Yale student with a $4 million grant to continue work on a site that works with school districts to gather the requisite data they needed to improve education. Mark Zuckerburg, the site’s founder, has also launched StartUp:Education, which is a program meant to transform the Newark’s public schools so that all children have access to a high quality education and so that other cities can use Newark as a model to reform their own schools.
Additionally, college sports venues are now becoming a hot commodity, with many companies purchasing naming rights for the stadiums.
Feel free to like, share, and comment on this infographic by http://www.bestmastersprograms.org/ , entitled “Companies on Campus”.
