Would you like to brainstorm with your colleagues? We always hear you are so busy at the Summit that you don’t have time to brainstorm with your peers. Here’s your chance. We will have topic sign-up sheets available Tuesday, so start thinking about burning topics you’d like to brainstorm with your peers, or ideas you would like to share.

11:30 AM   Who are the NCWIT AA Seed Fund Winners?

Presented by Krysta Svore, Microsoft Research

Come hear what the five newest winners of the Microsoft Research funded Seed Fund award plan to do with their award. It might give you some ideas on what can work at your school.  

11:50 AM  Your Enrollment Data

Presented by Elizabeth Litzler, UW-Center for Workforce Development and Leisa Thompson, NCWIT Director of Research & Consulting

Ever wonder what happens to the enrollment data you provide to the NCWIT evaluator? Would you like to see your own data compared to other NCWIT members? Come hear about our new enrollment tracking tool that will be available to NCWIT AA members.

12:30 PM  Wrap-up

Presented by AA Recruitment & Engagement Team: Kiranmai Bellam, Prairie View A&M University, Douglas Blank, Bryn Mawr College, Amy Csizmar Dalal, Carleton College

Briefly review our two days of meetings. Did you write down what you are going to do? Do you plan on implementing a resource you heard about? Do you want to focus on a goal? Are you going to submit a Seed Fund proposal? Did you meet someone you want to stay in contact with? How are you going to use your enrollment data? As representatives for your institution, you are encouraged to share what you’ve learned at the Summit with your team back at home and look for opportunities to engage others throughout your institution who can benefit from your NCWIT membership.
