Abstract: 

The project builds a Computer Science Living-Learning Community (LLC) for first-year women at Rutgers.  Each year, 10-20 first-year women undergraduates at Rutgers who intend to major in computer science are selected for the LLC.  LLC participants live in a common dorm and are provided with an educational and community-building program that supports their progress as Rutgers students and as computer science majors. To our knowledge, this will be the first undergraduate living-learning community for women in computer science at any university.
