Bailey Organizes Grant Program for Faculty of High Minority RRS feed

  • Question

  • Various ACM special interest groups have matched a grant that Mark Bailey, an associate professor of computer science at Hamilton College, has secured from the National Science Foundation to help faculty from colleges with large numbers of minority students attend this week's Federated Computing Research Conference in San Diego. Bailey manages the program, which will provide support for travel so that the faculty members will be able to attend one of the 17 research conferences. The program hopes faculty members' attendance will help serve as a catalyst for the development of research programs at their schools, as well as to learn how to attract more students from traditionally underrepresented groups to computer science.
