Cyberinfrastructure Research for Social Change Research Experience for Undergraduates
DescriptionThe NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates Site: Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Research 4 Social Change at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) aims to engage students historically excluded from careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in research projects that are focused on social change. This nine-week summer program places students in a paid full-time research position working directly with researchers at UT. TACC is a leader in advanced computing and provides researchers access to supercomputers, tools, and support services. The REU activities are designed to leverage that knowledge and teach students computational competencies while helping students develop a sense of belonging in computing.

In this presentation, we summarize strategies that boosted student engagement and retention in the program. We also detail our efforts and outcomes for training and placement of students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines.
