Broader Participation

The AI-EDGE Institute is committed to developing a wide range of broadening participation (BP) programs. Our major initiatives will involve

(i) Developing AI-based outreach activities for K-12 students, particularly those from under-represented groups (URGs), and further preparing them for application and admission into university-level AI-related STEM programs;

(ii) Helping to build a large diverse workforce by providing training and research opportunities at Minority Serving Institution (MSI) institutions and increasing access to AI and networking education by URG communities and learners nationwide; and

(iii) Launching various Women In AI activities that help female K-12, college, graduate and postdoctoral students as well as female junior faculty members to pursue successful careers in AI-related fields.
