Alverno extends its mission of service and strengthens its ties to the community by offering graduate and adult programs to both women and men. Agreement regarding this mission is evident throughout the college in its publications and operating philosophy.

American Association of Physics Teachers

The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) was established in 1930 with the fundamental goal of ensuring the "dissemination of knowledge of physics, particularly by way of teaching." The AAPT supports physics education by way of serving tens of thousands of teachers of physics at the K-college level by aiming to increase the impact, diversity, numbers, and effective practices of physics teachers. It spearheads the integration of technology and computing in physics through various research-based projects and initiatives for teachers, by teachers.

American Heart Association

The six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association in 1924 would be amazed.
From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites our more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as our more than 3,400 employees.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Our size and scope let us have real impact. We have invested more than $4.1 billion in research, more than any U.S. nonprofit organization.

American Library Association

The American Library Association (ALA) is the oldest and largest library association in the world. Founded on October 6, 1876 during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the mission of ALA is “to provide leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.”

AnitaB.org

AnitaB.org was founded in 1994 by renowned computer scientist Anita Borg, Ph.D. (1949-2003). Formally known as the Institute for Women in Technology (IWT) and then Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology (ABI), AnitaB.org is the new identity that still honors our founder while reflecting our move away from a formal, bureaucratic attitude toward a warmer, more personal feeling. The “.org” in our name acts as a reminder of our nonprofit mission.

At AnitaB.org, we envision a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it. We connect, inspire, and guide women in computing, and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.

 

App Camp For Girls

App Camp For Girls seeks to address the gender imbalance in technology professions by inspiring middle-school age girls, transgender and gender non-conforming youth with a broad introduction to the process of app development, from brainstorming and designing ideas to building and pitching their unique apps. We believe that the experience of creating an app in one week can spark the enthusiasm that will propel youth to pursue further tech education.
 
In addition, App Camp For Girls is a place for women and other underrepresented genders in the tech community to come together, network, and provide mutual support in their endeavors to advance in the field of software development. We encourage and support our volunteers to continue their own education in programming and design.
