The University of South Carolina and Benedict College have partnered with Apple to build eight computer labs across the state in the United States.
In a press release, Gov. Henry McMaster announced that the initiative will locate the new labs near "local school districts, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), the South Carolina Technical College System and citizens in the community."
University of South Carolina President Bob Caslen says that the new labs will "give South Carolinians relevant skills that are in high demand in today's economy."
Susan Prescott, Apple's Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise & Education Marketing, echoed comments from Apple before that "access to technology is key to learning and workforce opportunities today."
The University says that each lab will be available to faculty, staff, students, and the community at no cost.
