    Activity Description 
    I inquired on the SIGCSE mailing list about recruiting faculty at the Grace Hopper Celebration. The responses pointed me to the affiliated Richard Tapia Celebration and to the Liberal Arts College Association for Faculty Inclusion (LACAFI). We hope to send some students to both conferences to inspire them and to have faculty attend at least one for recruiting purposes.
