Virginia-North Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation

About the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance

The Virginia-North Carolina Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation strives for diversification of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce, with an emphasis on increasing the number of underrepresented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees and matriculating to graduate school. Each of the twelve partner institution programs offers individually tailored recruitment, retention, and enhancement activities to support students such as bridge programs, stipends, symposia, tutoring, mentoring, workshops, and research experiences.

One goal of the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance is diversification of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce.

Computing and Engineering Diversity Resource Information Center (CEDRIC) logo

George Mason University's College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) has launched a new resource, Computing and Engineering Diversity Resource Information Center (CEDRIC), to assist with the institution's DEI efforts. CEDRIC will house a repository of scholarship and research opportunities, peer mentoring programs, and student activities. In addition, CEDRIC is home to existing opportunities like GMU's VA–NC Alliance LSAMP program, Girls Who Code, and the National Society for Black Engineers.
