The STARS Computing Corps Alliance for Broadening Participation
in Computing (BPC) is a national alliance of colleges and
universities with a shared commitment to take action to advance
diversity, equity, and inclusion in computing. STARS aims to shift
practices in computing departments in higher education in ways that
increase the number of women, Black, and Hispanic students that
persist in computing degree programs, and advance the careers of
students and faculty from groups that have been historically
underrepresented in computing. Additionally, STARS Computing Corps
conferences, communities, and networks create significant
institutional and human resources that can expand BPC research and
promising practices to a larger audience of researchers, educators,
administrators, CS departments, and K-20 students, and can
dramatically increase the number of people taking action in BPC
efforts. The STARS Computing Corps is supported with funding from
