NCWIT Extension Services Transformation (NEXT) Awards, UTEP GETS RECOGNIZED

NEXT Logo

NCWIT’s Extension Services for Undergraduate Programs (ES-UP) provides customized consultation to academic departments to help improve their strategic recruitment and retention of women students in their majors. To recognize the achievements of these outstanding departments, NCWIT has established — with funding from Google.org –the NCWIT Extension Services Transformation (NEXT) Awards.

These awards recognize ES-UP client departments that have shown significant positive outcomes in women’s enrollment and graduation rates, and have excellent potential for building on these gains. The awards reflect and reward practices that NCWIT recognizes as having the most significant impact on our long-term goal of increasing the number of women in information technology and other computing-related fields.

We are pleased to announce the 2015 NEXT Awardees!
