Director Women@SCS, Carnegie Mellon

Carol is the Director for Women@SCS and co-Director of Women@IT. She works closely with the Women@SCS Advisory Committee and the Women@SCS web site team. She helps to organize and oversee the wide ranging program of professional, academic and social activities that Women@SCS develops for the benefit of the greater community of students in the School of Computer Science at CMU. The Women@SCS advisory committee meets regularly to plan their program of events. Carol sees the Women@SCS committee as an amazing body of energy, intelligence and creativity. Indeed, these women students have contributed to curriculum input, workshops, student tutoring, outreach, mentoring and role modeling, and generally improving the visibility and well-being of the greater SCS community --while all the time studying and working to achieve their personal academic goals!!
