Different pathways into computing

LEAD: the Center for Inclusive Computing and the ECEP Alliance

This working group will consider how computing departments can best support the various pathways that exist into computing, with a focus on how to support/encourage diverse students. Discussions within this working group will include topics such as meeting the computing needs of non-majors, basic computational skills and competencies for all undergraduate students, dealing with different levels of experience in introductory courses, and robust programs at the intersection of computing and other disciplines (CS+X). In addition, this working group will consider what higher education computing programs can/should do to expand and diversify the number of students who transition seamlessly into computing from community college and K-12 programs.
