Who We Are

SCS4ALL is a student-run, non-profit organization that works to develop a program of social and professional activities and leadership opportunities to broaden participation and interest in computing by underrepresented groups such as women, minorities, students, and teachers in K-12.

SCS4ALL is open to all students in the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science (SCS) as well as any friends of SCS4ALL. We want ALL communities in SCS to feel included in shaping the organization and the events we run.

We hope to have lots of opportunities for Outreach. Students who are interested in reaching out can come to our biweekly General Meetings (see Events).

Organization

We have a committee of dedicated students (graduate and undergraduate) leading us forward! The work of the SCS4ALL committee focuses on several sub-groups.

Research shows that when students get involed in campus activities and find a social fit, they are more likely to find their academic fit and be successful.
