Abstract

Computing jobs are among the fastest growing areas of employment in the United States. However, there is a critical shortage of students majoring in computing. Institutions of higher education are not producing enough computing graduates to keep up with the growing demand. A contributing factor to the shortage of graduates in computing is the lack of African Americans completing computer science degrees. To change this trend, it is imperative to increase the number of African American receiving computer science degrees and who are well prepared for careers in computing. This chapter discusses effective techniques for retaining African American computer science majors at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
