NCWIT Learning Circles

Beginning in Spring 2019, the University of Maryland Computer Science Department participated in the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT) Learning Circles program. A task force of faculty and staff  was created to lead the NCWIT Learning Circles effort and complete a 360-degree view of our computer science undergraduate program.During this project, the Committee worked closely with the NCWIT Extension Services Consultant (ESC) and NCWIT social scientists. The ESC directly guided the Committee in using evidence-based practices and methods for recruiting and retaining women at the University of Maryland. 

Recommendations from this effort included:
