IBM-HBCU Quantum Centre welcomes ten more universities as members

Ten Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) were added to the list of IBM-HCBU Quantum Centre members. The centre was launched in September 2020 with thirteen members, and now the total rises to twenty-three. The goal of the centre is to provide quantum education for underrepresented communities and advance quantum information science (QIS). The centre’s initiative will go on for multiple years, focusing on STEM fields and itself follows IBM’s announcement of investing $100 million in these HBCUs through the IBM Skills Academy Academic Initiative.
