To broaden participation in the tech sector through the development and proliferation of bridge programs that connect students from all backgrounds to graduate degrees in computing. 


A tech higher ed sector where it is never “too late” and where all people feel a strong sense of agency and belonging.”

“It was really important to me to not just become fluent in coding but to learn the fundamentals that underpin all of computer science. Through the Bridge classes and the master’s core, I have set the foundation for future learning as technologies change.”

– Matthew, Columbia
