About STARS Alliance (Students & Technology in Academia, Research & Service)

The mission of the STARS Alliance is to increase the participation of women, under-represented minorities, and persons with disabilities in IT/computing disciplines through multi-faceted interventions. At FSU, these interventions focus on projects and programs that start at elementary school and progress through graduate school and on to IT/computing careers. The Alliance is organized as a national constellation of regional stars that include research universities, minority and women’s universities and colleges, K-12 educators, industry, professional organizations, and community groups.
