Message from the Director

Welcome to the Caribbean Computing Center for Excellence (CCCE), created through the Broader Participation in Computing-Alliance (BPC-A), a National Science Foundation project, that is a partnership with universities in Puerto Rico (Universidad Metropolitana, Universidad del Turabo, Universidad del Este, Universidad de Puerto Rico-Mayaguez, Universidad de Puerto Rico-Humacao, Universidad Interamericana-San Germán, Universidad Interamericana-Bayamón, Universidad Politécnica de Puerto Rico) and the University of the Virgin Islands. The CCCE has the primary goal of increasing the recruitment and participation of students in computing disciplines at the pre-college, undergraduate and graduate levels. This project will impact science, computer and mathematics teachers from Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands with workshops, teaching/learning strategies and research experiences, improve student support research infrastructure, provide strong student support to increase retention, graduate, and successfully transfer students into graduate school, provide pre-college research activities for students in computing-related areas, and disseminate the model and best practices to other institutions in the Caribbean and nationwide.
