“Pursuing higher education is an investment in one’s future. This partnership, envisioned alongside LIU President Dr. Cline, is a true investment in our community and young people in Brooklyn, in New York City and beyond,” said Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez.
“We’re excited that the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment will provide unique insight, knowledge and experiences for students and introduce the world to the next generation of unmatched talent.”
In addition to the college program, the School will offer camps for younger aspiring students. High schoolers will be able to enroll in summer residential camps, while students ages 10-18 can attend year-round Saturday programs in music and sports management. The programs will commence in spring 2021 and need-based scholarships will be available for the camps.
