Women in Computing

Women in Computing at Rochester continues positive growth trend

For many decades, the diversity in computer science nationally has been disproportionally lower than in other science disiplines.  In an effort to change that at Rochester, many steps have been taken to help build a better community for women and underrepresented minorities in the Department of Computer Science at Rochester. The University recently featured an article about our "code like a girl" campus trend in the NewsCenter publication.
