In 2004, the Computing Research Association (CRA) held its annual meeting in Snowbird, Utah, to update department chairs in computing on trend data and other computing-related issues. Attending the meeting […]
For years, the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) have lacked diverse representation of students. In some disciplines, like computer science, diversity has remained especially stagnant. However, there are growing initiatives […]

Using Academic Controversy in a Computer Science Undergraduate Leadership Course: An Effective Approach to Examine Ethical Issues in Computer Science. In Proceedings of the American Society of Engineering Education Annual Conference & Exposition (Vol. 2023).
The technology field today, with continually emerging social media and communication platforms, is highly impacted by controversy and ethical considerations. It is imperative for computer science undergraduates to be prepared […]
In our prior work, a cluster analysis (n = 2,339) identified four groups of engineering undergraduates’ non-cognitive and affective (NCA) factors from a list of 28 dimensions such as belongingness, […]
D. Kwak, P. Morreale, S. Hug, Y. Kumar, J. Chu, C. Huang, J. Li and P. Wang, “Evaluation of the Use of Growth Mindset in the Computer Science Classroom”, Proceedings of the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE ’22), New Providence, RI, ACM, 2022, accepted. https://doi.org/10.1145/3478431.3499365
Within computer science education, a growth mindset is encouraged. However, faculty development on the use of growth mindset in the classroom is rare and resources to support the use of […]
Technology is quickly evolving and continues to play an increasingly important role in our daily lives. Social, political, and ethical concerns about technology, including its applications in public surveillance, violations […]
Student success programs have achieved demonstrated benefits in broadening participation in geosciences and other STEM fields. These programs typically require an application from potential participants despite known challenges in recruiting […]
This paper presents an innovative approach, applicable to all research-based fields, that identifies and broadly engages future computer science researchers. The Computing Alliance of Hispanic Serving Institutions (CAHSI) piloted a […]
Hispanics have become the largest ethnic minority in the US Better serving Hispanics to succeed in tertiary education and scientific fields like computing is critical to build equitable life opportunities […]

Fernendez, & M. S. Wilson (Eds.), An Asset-Based Approach to Advancing Latina Students in STEM: Increasing Resilience, Participation, and Success (pp.75- 93). Routledge.
In this chapter, we seek to identify ways to support STEM Latina students with different backgrounds through High-Impact Practice (HIP) participation. Existing research indicates that HIP participation is positively related […]
Background: Noncognitive and affective (NCA) factors (e.g., belonging, engineering identity, motivation, mindset, personality, etc.) are important to undergraduate student success. However, few studies have considered how these factors coexist and […]
To identify and broadly engage the next generation of computer science researchers, the Computing Alliance of Hispanic Serving Institutions (CAHSI), an NSF INCLUDES Alliance, piloted a national virtual Research Experience […]
Data show that science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) postsecondary training programs lack gender and racial/ethnic diversity. Recent policy efforts are aimed at creating more inclusive environments for underrepresented groups […]
