Supporting the next generation of industry leaders
As CCIS evolves to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world, philanthropic support from organizations like yours is more critical than ever. Give now to help a student learn, engage, and make the next great discovery.
We believe that in today’s global economy, the high-tech workforce should reflect an increasingly diverse population. That’s why one of the college’s key objectives is to address the shortage of women and underrepresented minorities in the field of computer science—and why we created the Industry Partner Diversity Fund.
By supporting this initiative, your company will enable a new generation of computer science students to experience CCIS’ experiential learning method, rigorous curriculum, and nationally recognized co-op program. A generous gift of $25,000 provides a range of benefits for your company: co-op placements, career fairs, marketing opportunities, and more. Plus, it helps create a potential pipeline of diverse talent to your company.
