The BPCnet Resource Portal is a clearinghouse for the community to learn about and engage with ongoing projects to address underrepresentation in computing. This includes people who are women, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and persons with disabilities. (While additional groups may also be included, BPCnet defines underrepresentation in computing according to current NSF CISE guidelines.) BPCnet serves two key roles:
- Increase awareness of ongoing BPC efforts and research-based best practices for BPC.
- Assist departments and NSF PIs in planning and enacting impactful BPC activities.
