CAHSI at Kean
CAHSI is a networked community of students, faculty, administrators and other professionals committed to accelerating the achievements of Hispanics in computing. CAHSI is a national NSF INCLUDES Alliance that spans across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
The Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI) was formed in 2004 as a grassroots effort to increase the number of Hispanic students who pursue and complete baccalaureate and advanced degrees in computing fields. Recognizing the contributions and importance of 2-year colleges, CAHSI has now formalized the inclusion of 2-year colleges in its 20-30 vision. The Alliance is continually informed and enhanced through social science research and reflection of proven and promising practices.
The core purpose of CAHSI is to create a unified voice in an effort to consolidate the strengths, resources, and concerns of CAHSI institutions that are committed to increase the number of Hispanics who pursue and obtain quality credentials in computing areas.
By 2030, Hispanics will represent 20% or more of those who earn credentials in computing. CAHSI’s mission is to grow and sustain a networked community committed to recruiting, retaining, and accelerating the progress of Hispanics in computing.
We Believe in preparing Hispanic students with the technical qualifications and real-world experiences to shape the future of computing.
We Believe in growing a geographically dispersed network of partners to achieve lasting results.
We Believe inclusiveness must accompany diversity
