Announcing the Maryland Center for Women in Computing

The Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, and the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences are pleased to announce the establishment of the Maryland Center for Women in Computing. The Center is committed to improving gender diversity for current and future generations of computer scientists through retention, research and outreach. The Center will support, educate and mentor female students at the University of Maryland and will reach out to the local K-12 community in order to recruit young women into computing fields. The Center will sustain a vibrant community of scholars, researchers, students and educators working together to increase the involvement—and success—of women interested in earning a computer science degree. The Maryland Center for Women in Computing is generously sponsored by the Department of Computer Science, UMIACS, CMNS and corporate donors.

The Department welcomes comments, suggestions and corrections.  Send email to editor [-at-] cs [dot] umd [dot] edu.
