Activity Description 

After the 2016 NCWIT Summit I shared resources with our instructors. Most of this was done passively (left in the faculty area, in mailboxes) but some was also shared at a department meeting. This included the Top 10 Ways to Engage Underrepresented Students in Computing and other similar literature.

Progress On Activity 
Completed.
Lessons Learned 
It would have been more effective to hold dialogue and workshops and including these items, but time did not allow for it. However, I did see multiple instructors display the NCWIT stickers and take some of the resources.
