Organizations can join the Higher Ed Alliance to benefit from an exclusive invitation to the annual NCWIT Summit, guidance in applying research-based strategies for creating inclusion, and more. Through the Higher Ed Alliance, mobilize year round alongside faculty, staff, administrators, department heads, and other mentors nationwide working together to create lasting impact.
Individuals can also volunteer through NCWIT outreach and recognition programs. Recognize students for their computing aspirations, honor faculty for their outstanding mentorship, recruit at virtual career fairs and student-focused conferences, and more.
