FLIP Alliance Universities Want You

What are the FLIP Alliance Universities?  They are the Universities that produce a majority of the computer science faculty at research universities. 

The universities have come together as part of the  NSF-funded FLIP (Diversifying Future Leadership in the Professoriate) Alliance  to address the broadening participation challenge of increasing the diversity of the future faculty in computing at research universities as a way to achieve diversity across the field.

The FLIP Alliance Universities are committed to provide and actively participate in programs that help recruit, retain and develop students from underrepresented groups.  The FLIP Alliance Universities invite everyone in the CMD-IT community interested in graduate school to apply today.

The application deadlines are quickly approaching.

About the FLIP Alliance
The FLIP Alliance is funded by an NSF INCLUDES grant awarded in September 2017. This two-year grant provides the needed funding to launch and demonstrate the effectiveness of strategies focused on recruiting and retaining diverse doctoral students at the FLIP institutions. After two years, the FLIP Alliance will focus on strategic dimensions for scaling the effective programs. The principle investigators on the grant are Valerie Taylor (University of Chicago), Charles Isbell (Georgia Tech), and Jeffrey Forbes (Duke University), with Stafford Hood and Denice Hood at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign as senior personnel to oversee the evaluation and assessment.
