This new consortium builds on an AWS Educate program with the Los Angeles Community College District that was announced in August 2018.
AWS Educate, Ruth Hughs, Texas Secretary of State, Senator Royce West, educational leaders, and workforce development groups announced a new cloud degree initiative to help prepare students for cloud computing job opportunities.
