MCIS Sees Significant Progress

November 14, 2012
The University has made significant progress in improving the mathematics and computer science programs during the past decade.  Specifically, curricular changes including the redesign of core courses, the addition of new courses, the acquisition of accreditation for the computer science program and the establishment of tutoring services have all played a major role in these enhancements.  Improvements in the infrastructure of these programs have been accompanied by a corresponding increase in student's dedication to their studies.  This new dedication has been strongly facilitated through scholarships which support a decrease in employment and loans by recipients. The major outcome of these changes is the creation of strong programs which contribute to the production of strong African American graduates in the areas of computer science and mathematics.
