How to effectively meet the increasing demand for well-educated and experienced computer scientists and to encourage greater participation by minority students were the subjects of a daylong workshop sponsored by Governors State University and the National Science Foundation.
Computer science educators from Joliet Junior College, Moraine Valley Community College, Kankakee Community College, Daley College, South Suburban College, Prairie State College, and Morton College, met with members of the GSU computer science faculty. They discussed methods of improving the education each facility offers and how the community college curriculum and the GSU program can be aligned to offer a seamless transition toward a degree.
