Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) is realized in many different ways. One of these ways is through Alliances, which are defined as “broad coalitions of academic institutions of higher learning, K-12 schools, government, industry, professional societies, and other not-for-profit organizations that design and carry out comprehensive programs addressing underrepresentation in the computing disciplines. They have a large regional or national scope. Alliances operate across multiple stages of the academic pipeline and address one or several intended groups that are underrepresented. Collectively, Alliances serve as a national resource for achieving the transformation of computing education.” (source: NSF page on Broadening Participation in Computing). tracks BPC Alliances and INCLUDES Alliances that are primarily focused on the domain of computing. See below for these Alliances:
