Bridging The Opportunity Gap. The "digital divide" between low income and minority students, and their wealthier counterpart, is increasing. Middle class and wealthy students have increasing access to new technology and as a result are gaining skills that are propelling them to success in school and the workplace.
The UTP Advantage: It is the goal of The UTP Foundation to provide access to necessary technology and education that opens new professional opportunities for undeserved populations. UTP cares deeply about student success and has engineered a one-of-kind curriculum that is rooted deeply in the acceleration of the learning experience, bridging the gap, through real world experience, and practicum-merging practice with theory.
UTP provides a multi-pronged approach: 1) Provide access to IT education for under-served students 2) Provide students enrolled in the program with real world experience, solving IT needs for actual companies, all while building a robust portfolio of experience 3) Partner with non-profits and startups to offset IT costs, saving them capital to invest in growing
