On behalf of the CEWiT team I welcome you to the fall 2016 semester. If all goes as planned, as of October 1, CEWiT will move from being virtual for the past three years to having a home for our staff and interns that will be open and welcoming to all. Over this same time span we have grown to 2000 student affiliates, 450 faculty, 425 staff and 1200 alumnae affiliates.
Until now I have worn the director hat 25% and am pleased to announce that as of July 1 I began serving as the full-time CEWiT Director. Our staff, too, has grown and I invite you to check out who they are and their areas of responsibility. In addition to the people listed on the site, we have 32 student interns in CEWiT leadership and staff positions and all are looking forward to making a difference while developing professionally.
We are excited about a new approach to Faculty Advancement Circles, crash courses, and partnerships with the SSRC, the Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities and many other campus units. It will be a great year as we strive to encourage, promote, empower and advance a community of tech-savvy women on the IU campus where we believe that technology can be a catalyst to excellence regardless of your field. As always, your ideas are welcome throughout the year.
Maureen Biggers, Director
