Meet The Team

The STARS Computing Corps is a national alliance with a mission to broaden participation of underrepresented groups in computing within institutions of higher education. In particular, STARS aims to increase computing persistence and promote career advancement for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, with a focus on addressing systemic and social barriers faced by those from underrepresented groups in computing. We look forward to meeting you at the API Summit!

The mission of the CISE Education and Workforce (EWF) programs is to transform computing education at all levels and on a national scale to meet the challenges and opportunities of a world where computing is increasingly essential to all sectors of society. We seek to overturn the longstanding underrepresentation in computing, achieving proportional representation of women, persons with disabilities, veterans, Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics and Latino/as, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders. Ultimately, EWF envisions the development of a diverse workforce well prepared for careers in computing-related and computationally intensive fields.
