Mentoring Award to CMU Computer ScientistDecember 1, 2005
Lenore Blum of Carnegie Mellon University is a recipient of the 2004 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. According to the award citation, Blum "helped pioneer the Expanding Your Horizons program at Mills College in 1973. The program--designed to introduce young female students to women in science and related careers--has since gone national through the Math/Science Network. Blum's leadership has also been instrumental in transforming the culture of computing at Carnegie Mellon to embrace diversity as critical for the field and future of our nation and by creating a model mentorship organization, Women@SCS, for women students in computer science."
