A Whitefish Bay woman is leading an initiative between Alverno College and the Milwaukee School of Engineering to provide computers to students in Cameroon. Tracy Stockwell, Associate Professor of Professional Communication and Chair of the Communication & Technology Department at Alverno College, leads the initiative with colleague, professor Jill Moore, and MSOE students. Members of MSOE’S Community Computers work with Alverno as well as non-profit organizations to provide computers to families, and organizations in need. Community Computers has also worked across several continents and within the Milwaukee area to provide computers to schools. The joint venture works on taking computers, refurbishing them, installing open-source (free) software, and donating them to schools in Cameroon that would otherwise not be able to afford them.
