March 2015 CERP Infographic

By Ama Nyame-Mensah, CERP Research Associate

Black and Hispanic Students at Minority-Serving Institutions are more interested in a computing research career than their counterparts attending  Non-Minority Serving Institutions

Note: Interest in a computing research career was measured by asking students to indicate how interested are you in having a career as a computing researcher in industry or a government lab after you finish your highest degree. A five-point Likert scale was used, ranging from (1) Very Disinterested to (5) Very Interested. Black: Includes Black or African American. Hispanic: Includes Hispanic or Latina/o. Minority Serving Institutions are (postsecondary) institutions in which minorities (e.g., Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latina/os) exceed 50% of the total enrollment.

These data are brought to you by the CRA’s Center for Evaluating the Research Pipeline (CERP). CERP provides social science research and comparative evaluation for the computing community. To learn more about CERP, visit our website at
