Grace Hopper Conference: With support from Microsoft Research and Nokia Bell Labs, a group of 13 Rutgers women participated in the 2017 Grace Hopper Celebration held in October in Orlando, Florida. The group included nine members of the CS LLC class of 2020, as well as the CS LLC director, graduate mentor, and peer academic leader. Read more about it here.
Highlight: The CS LLC class of 2021 arrived at Rutgers on August 31, 2017. In the days before classes began, students learned their way around campus, met their new CS LLC classmates, their faculty advisor (and DIMACS Director) Rebecca Wright, their peer academic leader, and their graduate student mentor. Their arrival on campus, as well as the LLC community they joined, is described in a DIMACS News Highlight.
CS LLC Begins: In 2016, Rutgers celebrated its 250th anniversary while the computer science department celebrated its own 50th anniversary. A brochure about the department reflected on past acheivements and highlighted current programs. The launch of the CS LLC was highlighted in an article that is reproduced in this flyer.
