Strategic Partners Council

Computer Science / Documents


The mission of the Calvin University Department of Computer Science’s Strategic Partners Council is threefold:

  1. Under-Represented Groups. Help Calvin’s CS department improve the representation of under-represented groups — especially women — in departmental programs.
  2. Pre-Professional Preparation. Help Calvin CS juniors and seniors prepare for life after Calvin through mock interviews, internships, field trips, and other experiences.
  3. Program Review. Help Calvin’s CS department by regularly reviewing the educational objectives of the department’s academic programs.

The council meets quarterly to pursue this mission, and has launched The 50 Percent Initiative, a program to address the shortage of technical talent and increase gender diversity in the technology sector, starting with Calvin's CS department. The council consists of individuals selected from the various professional constituencies that the department serves.
