Description:
STARS (Students in Technology, Academia, Research, & Service) Computing Corps is a national community of regional partnerships with a mission to grow a diverse 21st century technology workforce. The Corps is a framework for integrating engagement into computing departments for recruitment and graduation of undergraduate and graduate students. Over fifty colleges and universities have implemented the STARS Leadership Corps program, a curricular or co-curricular service-learning program for college students. Corps students collaborate with regional K-12 schools, industry, and community partners to inform, engage, and prepare upcoming students for entry and success in college computing programs. Through student-led regional engagement that includes peer mentoring, team projects, and research experiences, STARS Computing Corps students are emerging as the future innovators of tomorrow.
