STARS Managing Director of Programs and Impact

STARS Managing Director of Programs and Impact

The STARS Computing Corps Alliance for Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) is a national alliance of colleges and universities with a shared commitment to take action to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in computing. STARS aims to shift practices in computing departments in higher education in ways that increase the number of women, Black, and Hispanic students that persist in computing degree programs, and advance the careers of students and faculty from groups that have been historically underrepresented in computing. Additionally, STARS Computing Corps conferences, communities, and networks create significant institutional and human resources that can expand BPC research and promising practices to a larger audience of researchers, educators, administrators, CS departments, and K-20 students, and can dramatically increase the number of people acting in BPC efforts. The STARS Computing Corps is supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is headquartered in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University in the city of Philadelphia.

The STARS Managing Director of Programs & Impact will support implementation of key initiatives and programs across the STARS Computing Corps Alliance. The Managing Director collaborates with the STARS team and its partner organizations to plan, organize, and execute programs and collaborates with STARS Evaluation & Research Team to support research, data collection, project evaluation, and reporting. As a result, the STARS Managing Director also contributes to the knowledge base of research and data on best practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion in computing in higher education and K12.
