DescriptionUnder-representation of minorities and women in the STEM workforce, especially in computing, is a Seven institutions, including 5 MSIs, are piloting a Computational and Data Science Curriculum Exchange (C2Exchange) to address the curriculum challenges associated with sustained access to computational and data science courses in institutions with high percentage enrollment of students from populations currently under-represented in STEM disciplines.
The goal of the C2Exchange pilot is to create a network for resource constrained institutions to share CDS courses and increase their capacity to offer CDS minors and certificate programs. The exchange model facilitates the sharing of curriculum and expertise across institutions for immediate implementation of some courses and long-term capacity building for new Computational and Data Science programs.
