Abstract

We have formed the STARS Alliance to address alarming declines in computing enrollments and the need to broaden participation in computing. Our innovative STARS Leadership Corps engages college students in a community dedicated to giving back, persevering, and striving for excellence. The successful Corps model incorporates best practices in recruiting and retention in computing, including student experiences in outreach, research, and service. We present case studies of three diverse implementations of the STARS Leadership Corps that demonstrate how the Corps can be tailored to individual institutions and student interests.
