Because City Tech is a Hispanic Serving Institution and one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in the country, this program will have impact on urban communities that are underrepresented in STEM. Due to advances of computer and information technology, for the first time in human history, any person, with or without scientific credentials, with or without special means, may have an access to rather sophisticated research activities. Discovering the new ways of teaching and learning through interdisciplinary computational curricula and providing organizational and technological infrastructure of these activities will give our students and the broader community the ability to take advantage of these unique and endless possibilities, and will thereby fulfill the educational imperative of the college’s mission. The web of interrelationships among departments and schools within our college that this project will create will have far-reaching and long-lasting effect. Dissemination activities through this web will be continuous and systemic, reaching outward through our internal and external advisory boards and the online community.
