Computer Science Living-Learning Community for Women at Rutgers University

NSF Awards: 1504775

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Undergraduate

Douglass Residential College (DRC) students at Rutgers University describe their experiences as part of the Computer Science Living-Learning Community (LLC), a program now in its third year. Each year, around 20 first-year undergraduate women who intend to major in computer science (CS) apply and are selected to participate. LLC participants live in a common residence hall and are provided with  educational, mentoring, and community-building activities that supports their progress as students and CS majors. Participants take a “house course,” Great Ideas and Insights in Computer Science, as a group, and also take a course on Knowledge and Power: Issues in Women’s Leadership. Program activities include study sessions and industry interactions, as well as opportunities to participate in K-12 outreach programs, hackathons, and computing research.
