Regis University

Regis University educates men and women of all ages and faiths to take leadership roles and to make a positive impact in a changing society. Standing within the Catholic and United States traditions, we are inspired by the particular Jesuit vision of Ignatius Loyola. This vision challenges us to attain the inner freedom to make intelligent choices. We seek to provide value-centered undergraduate and graduate education, as well as to strengthen commitment to community service. We nurture the life of the mind and the pursuit of truth within an environment conducive to effective teaching, learning and personal development.

As a consequence of Ignatius Loyola's vision, particularly as reflected in his Spiritual Exercises, we encourage all members of the Regis community to learn proficiently, think logically and critically, identify and choose personal standards of values, and be socially responsible. We further encourage the development of the skills and leadership abilities necessary for distinguished professional work and contributions to the improvement and transformation of society.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Rensselaer offers more than 145 programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. Students are encouraged to work in interdisciplinary that allow them to combine scholarly work from several departments or schools. The university provides rigorous, engaging, interactive learning environments and campus-wide opportunities for leadership, collaboration, and creativity. For almost two centuries, Rensselaer has maintained its reputation for providing an undergraduate education of undisputed intellectual rigor based on educational innovation in the laboratory, classroom, and studio. The Institute is especially well-known for its success in the transfer of technology from the laboratory to the marketplace so that new discoveries and inventions benefit human life, protect the environment, and strengthen economic development. One root, written into the school’s founding documents, is “...the application of science to the common purposes of life.” The second root, also built into the school’s origin, was the employment of unique educational strategies.

Rice University

The department at Rice has a three-sided mission: to create knowledge, to disseminate knowledge, and to provide service to their communities - the local Rice community and the broader community beyond the campus. From anti lock brakes to airbags, secondary oil recovery to weather prediction, advanced imaging technology to digital enhancement in the cinema, computation is changing the world. Contrary to popular belief, the job market in computer science and information technology is robust and growing (a fact highlighted by the recent ACM task force on Outsourcing, chaired by their own Moshe Vardi).

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

The CS group for women called "gEECS" i.e. girls in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering meets three to four times a term and gives the women an opportunity to get to know each other and plan outreach activities with middle and high school girls. Along with DePauw University and Indiana University at Bloomington, they are organizing INWIC 2008 (Indiana Women in Computing). This is a conference for women in computer science programs in Indiana and is a great opportunity for their students to network with other young women in the field and share their ideas. Their faculty teaches two-day workshops for high school Computer Science teachers in Indiana, to help them prepare their students for the CS Advanced Placement exams.
