NCWIT & ACM-W Student Seed Fund
Create and Expand WiC Groups on Campus
The NCWIT and ACM-W Student Seed Fund offers an opportunity to create or expand ACM-W chapters on college and university campuses.
WiC groups on campus can increase women’s confidence and enjoyment of their technical studies, help reduce feelings of isolation, dispel common myths and stereotypes, and empower students to actively recruit and mentor other women. NCWIT offers a brief guide, which discusses how to get a group started and to build its structure, the importance of maintaining an open and public presence, possible activities, ways to build membership, and the value of affiliating with other groups. View the “How to Create and Sustain a Women in Computing Group on Your Campus” resource.
