“Through ABCS, I have found a community of students that are willing to share resources and provide mentorship. This has helped me tremendously in my courses as I have been able to study with peers I have met through ABCS and find encouragement through my network.”

“ABCS has helped me build a supportive group of friends and mentors that have shown me that it is possible to succeed academically as a black woman in the CS program here at UT. I’ve found friends I can ask advice and help from and friends to study and learn with.”

We surveyed our students and here are the top outreach events from the 2019 - 2020 school year: Black Excellence in STEM Day, Hour of Code, Vex Robotics volunteer day with Google, and the Diversity in Tech Field Trip
