Loyola University Chicago

Loyola University Chicago

With an enrollment over 15,500, Loyola University Chicago is the nation's largest Jesuit University and is comprised of four campuses: Lake Shore (LSC) near the northern edge of the city, Water Tower (WTC) in the northern downtown area, Loyola University Health System (LUHS) in west suburban Maywood, and the John Felice Rome Center in Italy. The Department of Computer Science offers classes at the Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses and offers several degree programs, some jointly with other departments. Loyola has consistently ranked among the "top national universities" in the annual review by U.S.News and World Report and was named a "best value" in the 2008 rankings. A particular strong point is faculty-student interaction, as evidenced by such measures as high results on the National Survey of Student Engagement, a 13:1 student-faculty ratio, and an undergraduate research opportunities program supporting over 100 students annually.

Massachusetts Academy of Sciences

At the MAS, we are passionate about making science tangible and exciting to everyone!  We search for and facilitate innovative partnerships between science industries, research institutions, science teachers, college students, and the general public; creating dynamic activities and communities that mutually satisfy the common goals of all our partners.  We combine our powerful resources of pedagogy and STEM field experts to create dynamic educational campaigns.  These campaigns put a “face” to the science that affects everyday lives, and serves up science to the public — making them want to come back for more!  

What is the ultimate goal?  By satisfying our objectives to improve STEM education and STEM workforce development, we satisfy our over-arching goal, which is to increase civic science literacy.  When Massachusetts residents are empowered with scientific knowledge, their decision-making is well informed, their voices are strong, and their communities are recognized; they have a direct hand in how science affects their daily lives.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

The primary mission of the department is the education of its students. Its three undergraduate programs traditionally have attracted over 30% of all MIT undergraduates, and its doctoral programs are highly ranked and selective. A leader in cooperative education, the department has operated the highly successful VI-A Internship Program since 1917. The MIT Women's Technology Program (WTP) is a four-week summer academic and residential experience where female high school students explore engineering through hands-on classes, labs, and team-based projects in the summer after 11th grade. Our goal: to spark high school girls' interest in future study of engineering and computer science.
