As part of a collection of peer-reviewed articles, Women’s Under Representation in Engineering and Computing: Fresh Perspectives on a Complex Problem, AWIS Director of Research Heather Metcalf, PhD, and co-authors discuss their longitudinal research on academic computing culture and steps necessary for change. The culture study of the Computer Science Department at the flagship University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that while the department placed an emphasis on research, it did so in a way that, in conjunction with a lack of communication and transparency, devalued teaching and mentoring, and negatively impacted the professional development, education, and sense of belonging of the students.
