The Dartmouth EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service)
program seeks to partner students and community agencies in
significant projects requiring computer science and software
engineering skills. We are following the model established by the
successful EPICS program at
Purdue University. At Dartmouth, EPICS was founded by
Prof. Chris Bailey-Kellogg.
To date, Dartmouth EPICS has established the following
partnerships (bold projects are underway):

A series of sessions at the 2006
Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing engaged
participants in computing and community. A design exercise featured
the High Horses partnership,
using a video interview with Executive Director Liz Claud to
brainstorm about computing solutions to community problems.
