Are you attending the CMD-IT/ACM Richard Tapia Conference? If so, please consider attending “The NSF’s BPC Initiative: Resources and Opportunities to Contribute” on Wednesday, September 15 from 1:30 – 2:15 CDT!
Dr. Burçin Tamer, Director of CERP, will be moderating a panel of BPC experts and NSF representative to discuss the National Science Foundation’s BPC Plan requirements. Below you can find the detailed description with a link to the Tapia session.
Broadening participation in computing (BPC) requires our individual and collective effort. The National Science Foundation is leading an effort to encourage NSF PIs and all computing departments to create BPC plans. Panelists will share resources and advice for how attendees can get involved. Students, staff, and faculty can all play an important role in broadening participation in computing. Since the NSF initiative and supporting resources on BPCnet.org are relatively new, attendees can help by sharing information within their institution and broader network.
More details about the panel can be found here.
