The NCWIT Academic Alliance brings together nearly 600 distinguished representatives from academic computing programs at more than 250 colleges and universities across the country, spanning research universities, community colleges, women's colleges, and minority-serving institutions. Charged with implementing institutional change in higher education, the Academic Alliance provides feedback on NCWIT programs, contributes and adopts effective practices, and serves as a national agent of change. It meets several times per year to compare approaches and provide guidance and mutual support. Membership in the AA is free for participating academic institutions. See the full list of members here.
