These videos share lessons and insights from winners of NCWIT Extension Services Transformation (NEXT) Awards. The NEXT Awards celebrate past...
I want to:
- Raise Awareness
- Inspire Students
- Engage Students
- Recognize Students & Educators
- Create Systemic Change
Learn about the current status of computing degrees earned by women, and raise awareness among colleagues and students to help increase women's meaningful participation.
See and hear from a wide range of technical role models. Foster connections with the local community. Motivate students by relating computing experiences to their current interests.
Faculty can consider three evidence-based principles for engaging and retaining all students: Make It Matter, Grow Inclusive Student Community, and Build Student Confidence and Professional Identity.
NCWIT offers awards for both computing students and faculty, recognizing students’ technical accomplishments and faculty’s inclusion efforts relative to their students.
Revise educational systems to fit people, rather than changing people to fit biased systems, with resources that help computing faculty reimagine recruitment, retention, and evaluation.
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.
The Higher Ed Alliance is funded in part by Microsoft Research.
