Overview

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department provides mentoring to undergraduate students and facilitates presentations to provide undergraduates with opportunities to gain information on research experiences, internships and on exploring the graduate experience. The department is a member of the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) Academic Alliance whose focus is on diversity particularly for women and girls and charged with bringing about institutional change in computing.

Students work with outreach initiatives to improve computer science education at all levels. One of these initiatives is the STARS (Students & Technology in Academia, Research & Service) Alliance a regional partnerships among academia, industry, K-12 and the community to strengthen local programs by focusing on K-12 outreach, community service, student leadership and computing diversity research.

Students work with many programs focused on increasing the computing pipeline by getting students interested in STEM disciplines and future technology careers. These programs include The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). Our students conduct outreach activities to include the local elementary, middle, and high school in a concerted effort to broaden participation in computing for underrepresented minorities and girls. These workshops include teaching boys and girls from K-12 how to write programs, develop websites, and program robots.
