Abstract

The University of Leeds is the largest campus-based university in the United Kingdom in terms of student numbers. The School of Computing has, in recent years, sought to share its academic and technical advantages with schools in economically deprived inner-city areas. This chapter describes some of the projects which have been initiated and managed by the School of Computing. We discuss how these have benefited both the schools and our participating undergraduate students. The chapter concludes with a discussion on some of the difficulties encountered and those factors that, from our experience, help to achieve success.
