We have a problem:
Global social inequity and environmental degradation are increasing.
Computer science education is not consistently or sufficiently using its ability to make a large positive social impact on these problems.
All computing education programs, whether formal, informal, public or private sector based, integrate computing for social good (CSG) throughout their design and delivery.
We will develop a network of computer science faculty who are currently integrating CSG into any of their classes and facilitate an ongoing conversation about how to increase the presence of CSG in computing education.
Five years from now all students majoring in computing will have an experience using computing to better the world.
