To build camaraderie among underrepresented groups in the CS department, the Association for Women in Computing (AWC) offers a one-to-one mentorship program called Sisters+. Upper division students (“Sisters+ Mentors”) are matched with lower-division students (“Sisters+ Mentees”) to provide each other with support and access to better resources. The program seeks to be inclusive of all gender identities--if you need the support of an upper-division mentor or you want to give back to your fellow students, this program is for YOU! To sign up for the program, fill out the form at http://awc.cs.wwu.edu/.
