Alka Singh

My name is Alka Singh and I am the Director of Experiential Learning at the School of Computing & Information. I am a passionate advocate of outside of the classroom opportunities for our students and believe these are the experiences that will change the course of their education and ultimately their career paths. For the past two years, I have had the pleasure of leading a group of 17 diverse students on Alternative Spring Break trips to Quito, Ecuador where they were able to use their varied technical skills to provide IT support to a local nonprofit community organization and teach 70 7th grade students basic Microsoft skills. I believe these types of experiences should not be limited to merely those who can afford to explore the world but should be accessible for students of all backgrounds.
