Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation has partnered with Long Island University in Brooklyn to create a school on the college campus that is focused on educating students that aspire to careers in entertainment. The partnership was announced earlier this week. LIU president Kimberly Cline commented on the new venture.
“We look forward to joining with Roc Nation to offer an unprecedented educational resource that opens up the entertainment and sports world to a new and eager generation.”
Jay-Z is a native of Brooklyn and he’s been helping the community for decades. His Sean Carter Foundation was established in 2002 and has since helped numerous students with scholarships and other forms of support. The school will open for the 2021 school year.
