2  CRA-W/CDC supported approaches  Department approaches  Individual approaches

3  CRA-W/CDC supported approaches ◦ CRA-W: Computer Research Association Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research ◦ CDC: Coalition to Diversify Computing  Distributed REU (DREU)  Collaborative REU (CREU)  Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLS)  Discipline Specific Workshops (DSW)  Department approaches  Individual approaches

4  Teams an undergrad student from an URG with a faculty member at a research institution ◦ 10 week research experience ◦ Often students are from non R1 institutions  Applications are accepted from students and faculty mentors in February ◦ Application from mentors similar to REU proposals  1 or 2 paragraph description of the proposed project  1 or 2 paragraph description of why you are a good mentor ◦ DREU does the selection and matching  Faculty are not required to accept a match ◦ Faculty are encouraged to provide some financial support  DREU covers travel costs for all students

5  Benefits ◦ Students are exposed to research ◦ Students see what it is like to be a graduate student ◦ Students may get a letter of recommendation from their mentor for graduate school/employment ◦ Students get advice about applying to graduate school and career options ◦ Graduate students get experience mentoring ◦ Faculty may get some interesting research results

6  Teams two or more undergrad students from URGs with a faculty member ◦ 2 semesters [plus optional summer] ◦ Interdisciplinary teams should include faculty from different departments  Applications are accepted from faculty in May for the following academic year ◦ Application similar to REU proposals  1 or 2 paragraph description of the proposed project and the participating students  1 or 2 paragraph description of why you are a good mentor

7  Benefits ◦ Students are exposed to research ◦ Students may get a letter of recommendation from their mentor for graduate school/employment ◦ Students should get advice about applying to graduate school and career options ◦ Faculty may get some interesting research results  Longer-term project; potential for continuation

8  Bring in speakers from URGs for technical and mentoring discussions ◦ Full day of events  Sometimes involves clusters of area schools  Applications accepted on a rolling basis  Funding provided by DLS

9  Organize a mentoring workshop for junior faculty, graduate students, undergrads ◦ Invite speakers and participants from URGs ◦ Co-locate with a conference or other event ◦ Generic information  How to write a paper? ◦ Discipline-specific information  What are the differences in venues in this discipline?  Evaluation expectations ◦ Applications accepted January 15 and June 15  Funding from DSW, industry, ACM and IEEE

10  CRA-W/CDC supported approaches  Department approaches  Individual approaches

11  CRA-W/CDC supported approaches  Department approaches ◦ Department REU site ◦ Department support groups ◦ Department programs  Individual Approaches

12  Usually a summer program ◦ Applications from students and from local faculty ◦ An individual faculty mentor for each student  Group programs ◦ Weekly lunches  Presentations by graduate students ◦ Seminars on mentoring topics  Why consider graduate school?  How to apply to graduate school?  Group outings  Proposals submitted to NSF

13  Mentoring and support groups  E.g., Umass CS Women’s group ◦ Bi-monthly lunches ◦ Invite speakers ◦ Arrange transportation to attend events ◦ Grad/ugrad mentoring program ◦ Volunteer for outreach programs ◦

14  Development program for undergraduate students ◦ E.g., monthly meetings with panels and presentations ◦ Why Consider Graduate School? ◦ How to Get an Internship? ◦ How to Become Involved in Research as an undergrad ◦ …  Development program for graduate students ◦ E.g., monthly meetings with panels and presentations  How to navigate our graduate program  Ethics  How to search for a job  Career Alternatives  …

15  CRA-W/CDC supported approaches  Department approaches  Individual approaches ◦ Participate in any of the previous events ◦ Mentor, mentor, mentor
