Rutgers is proud to announce the 4th annual NJ Computer Science Summit on Diversity and Scalability on November 1st, 2019.   Prior summits have provided opportunities for stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds to participate in a dialogue regarding the state of computer science education in New Jersey. As we continue to see growth in undergraduate CS programs, and increased interest in secondary CS, this summit offers an opportunity for conversations among New Jersey 4- and 2-year college faculty, K-12 teachers and administrators, representatives from industry, the NJ Department of Education and other government offices. As in past summits, we plan on a schedule that includes dynamic guest speakers, discussion panels, and breakout sessions.
