USF CSE chosen to be a BRAID affiliates institution

May 4, 2020

USF CSE is one of a handful of computing programs chosen to be an BRAID
Affiliates Institution in 2020. Notably, “Affiliates are institutions that have committed to
increasing the diversity of their computing departments, but do not receive funding through
the BRAID initiative. Affiliates participate in BRAID for one year, during which they learn best
practices from our BRAID Schools.” USF CSE has committed itself to increasing the percentage
of women and populations underrepresented in computing students across all four undergraduate degree programs – computer science, computer engineering, information technology, and cybersecurity. For more information on BPC efforts, see Inclusion and BPC.
