This student organization is focused on increasing retention within the College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) and recruiting students into computing from the rest of the UNCC student body. We accomplish this through the forum of the STARS Student Organization's weekly meetings that involve:

  • Tech Talks on certain topics
  • Panels about internships and REUs, about CCI Alumni, and about graduate school
  • Workshops to improve resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and interview skills

This forum lays the groundwork for students to collaborate with each other through team projects, networking events with industry professionals, and to help build their identity within UNC Charlotte's CCI. The team also promotes outreach for middle school and high school students where UNCC student volunteers teach computer science concepts to children in hopes of sparking interest in STEM fields.
