AiiCE Vision, Goal, & Objectives
Learn what drives the Alliance for Identity-Inclusive Computing Education (AiiCE).
AiiCE’s collective impact approach to broadening participation convenes national leaders in K-16 computer science (CS) education to transform high-school and postsecondary CS education using identity-inclusive strategies that target people, policies, and practices.
AiiCE aims to increase the entry, retention, and course/degree completion rates of secondary and postsecondary students from groups that are historically underrepresented in computing.
AiiCE will collectively create systemic change by blending aspects of social science with CS to:
- Increase CS student and educator knowledge and use of identity and related topics
- Support CS educators and leaders in fostering academic cultures that are more inclusive of non-dominant identities
- Increase K-16 policy-driven changes to CS education that infuse identity-inclusive strategies
