Empowering Leadership: Computing Scholars of Tomorrow Alliance

Who We Are

mentoring pic People involved in the EL Alliance are from a wide variety of educational institutions, as well as from industry and other organizations.  But we are defined by a common purpose to support underrepresented minority students - encouraging, preparing, and retaining them - as they pursue degrees in computing disciplines.

The EL Alliance has developed a national network of colleagues deeply committed to the success of these students and faculty. The leadership and partners of the EL Alliance are wholly unmatched in this country in their collective diversity and accomplishments, and include leaders who serve as mentors, speakers, and role models, as well as a network of professionals who provide access to research and mentoring resources, academic and career opportunities. 

Leading Institutions

The leading institutions of the EL Alliance have led nationally recognized programs for minority scholars for three decades, and include Rice University (U.); Boston U.; U. of California, Berkeley; U. of Texas, Austin; Clemson U., U. of Georgia; Stonybrook U;  and Tufts U.
