Since 2012, the Dartmouth Computer Science department has been an academic sponsor of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. In 2016, Dartmouth was well represented by 16 undergraduate women and Professor Tom Cormen. Among the many who stopped by our booth were several alumni of our undergraduate and graduate programs.
This photo shows nine of our 16 students who attended, along with Dartmouth CS alumna and Rhodes Scholar Fiona Herring ’02 (back row, right) and Tom Cormen (you can guess which one he is). Currently, over 30% of Computer Science majors at Dartmouth are women, compared with the national average of 18%.
