• CS Department receives a Community Grant for $10,000 from the Best Buy Foundation to support TLI!

    The Computer Science Department is pleased to announce that it has received a community grant for $10,000 from the Best Buy Foundation to support the department's Technology Leadership Initiative (TLI)! The grant is awarded through the Community Grants program, in partnership with local Best Buy stores, to support programs that provide youth with access to new technologies and help them become interested and fluent in digital learning while developing skills to help better prepare them for future education and career success. The Best Buy Foundation's primary goal is to give teens access to opportunities through technology that help them excel in school and develop 21st century skills for their future careers. The CS Department's Technology Leadership Initiative aims to engage students across grade levels and strives to instill a passion for computing and technical thinking. TLI consists of two major components, Tech Divaz and High School Academy. The mission of TLI is to provide under-represented and under-served students in grades 6-12 with opportunities, tools, and motivation needed to pursue Computer Science related degrees and excel academically, socially and professionally. Thanks to the Best Buy Foundation the CS Department will be able to continue and expand its TLI program!
