Your college degree, sponsored by Google? " Interim (University of Nebraska) President Chris Kabourek announced Tuesday that the university will soon offer Google Career Certificates in a variety of fields... Google experts teach the programs, which are vetted by leading employers. NU students, alumni and Nebraska residents can get a special first-year rate of $20 per enrollment." According to Kabourek, "the new partnership advances a 2022 legislative goal, which NU supported, to increase the percentage of Nebraskans with postsecondary credentials by 2030 to 70%." I'm not sure that's what the legislature meant, but these days, who can be sure? Via The 74.
