REU Supplement: BPC-DP: African-American Researchers in Computing Sciences (AARCS) Supplement to 144-PRJ19XG
This project aims to broaden African American participation in tenure track faculty and research scientist positions within the education pipeline. Targeted presentations by African American computing sciences faculty and graduate students will expose African American undergraduates nationwide to role models, research, and graduate school opportunities that are specifically designed to address concerns and misunderstandings about computing sciences faculty and research.
Jerlando Jackson is coordinating program evaluation and a follow-up study.
The program will serve as a successful model that can be incorporated into larger Alliance projects and replicated at other institutions to target African Americans and other underrepresented groups.
