UMBC’s Center for Women in Technology (CWIT) is dedicated to increasing the representation of women in engineering and information technology fields. CWIT’s efforts are focused on four priorities.
- Nurturing a strong group of undergraduate Scholars through the CWIT, Cyber, and T-SITE scholars programs.
- Building community among other women in COEIT majors through its Affiliates programs.
- Collaborating to foster a healthy gender climate and pedagogy in COEIT departments.
- Implementing outreach activities to increase the interest of women and other underrepresented groups in technical careers.
