Google In Residence

The Google In Residence (GIR) program was founded by Google in 2013 with the mission to grow and support a more representative pipeline. The program embeds Google engineers at HBCUs and Hispanic Serving Institutions across the country to serve as visiting lecturers for the schools' introductory CS courses. GIR instructors bring an industry perspective to campus and work with the community to develop a strong CS curriculum, to support students in their search, and to grow student engagement in technical fields.
