Overview

Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI) is an inclusive consortium of institutions and individuals committed to creating a unified voice and consolidating their strengths and resources to increase the number of Hispanics who pursue and complete baccalaureate and advanced degrees in computing areas.

Program Description

The goal of CAHSI is to increase the number of Hispanic professionals who enter the computing workforce by supporting retention. The strategy used by CAHSI is promoting dialogue, establishing collaboration for sharing resources, promoting opportunities, endorsing a social science network, conduct and share social science research, and implement initiatives that support student success. 

Outcome

CAHSI’s baccalaureate graduation rates have consistently surpassed the national graduation rates, and CAHSI has consistently graduated a high proportion of Hispanic master’s degree recipients, in particular those who are women.
