As a Pacesetter, Michigan Technological University is committing to a full-force, multi-pronged approach to achieving our short-term goal of doubling the number of women enrolling in our undergraduate computing programs. We are implementing a summer camp aimed at high school women, developing activities to be used in local and traveling outreach programs, creating materials describing the opportunities available with a degree in Computer Science (CS), a Discover CS day on campus, utilizing alumnae as role models, and collaboration with industry partners interested in expanding the pipeline. In addition, we are working with our admissions staff to ensure they are well-equipped to influence young women to pursue computing careers.
