Computer Science Equity Alliance (CSEA), UCLA

To address the issue of the rarity of females and students of color in computer science, LAUSD and UCLA created the Computer Science Equity Alliance, a collaboration aimed to support computer science teaching and learning in LAUSD. CSEA provides outreach support and faculty assistance for young women. As a result, the number of schools offering APCS and numbers of high school students enrolled in APCS has significantly increased. Importantly, the representation of African Americans, Latinos, and females has increased since the beginning of the Computer Science Equity Alliance.
