  • Have documented buy-in from the dean and department chair.

  • Identify a four- to six-member committee to work on increasing women’s participation in computing. (We can provide guidance on committee membership.)

  • Complete periodic pre-work activities prior to Learning Circle meetings.  

  • Develop and begin implementing a strategic recruitment and retention plan, including evaluation methods, for increasing women’s participation in computing.

  • Administer an introductory level course entry survey.

  • Submit a report at the end of the project.
