Card Title
Merced Colleges' Coordinator and Professor of Computer Science, Kathy Kanemoto, was chosen to participate in Google's 2018 FIR (Faculty In Residence) Program
Google hosted the second iteration of its Faculty in Residence program this summer. 21 CS faculty members, who serve underrepresented students from 20 institutions, were invited to spend 4 weeks in an immersive learning experience, working as a cohort at Google’s Mountain View headquarters. The cohort explored hands-on, project based learning workshops and resources to augment their curriculum, discussed industry expectations, learned more about the technical interviewing process, and immersed themselves in Google’s engineering culture. The program provided faculty the time, space, and opportunity to collaborate with each other in the creation of learning materials that will be applied in their classrooms when they return to campus this fall. Faculty also provided Google partners with important insights that will help our teams continue to advance their commitment to diversity and inclusion for both Googlers and users.
