BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE: COMPUTING IN TRIBAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

Roli Varma
School of Public Administration, University of New Mexico, USA

RÉSUMÉ

Because of their relatively small number (1% as the single race and 1.5% in combination with other races of U.S. population), American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIAN) are seldom represented in the assessment of ethnic/racial disparities in computer science education. If they are included, focus is rarely on tribal colleges and universities (TCUs), which are perceived to be community colleges. This paper studies inclusion of AIAN in computer science education in TCUs. It is based on interviews with computer science faculty and students majoring in the computer science field at a TCU in 2005. The paper shows challenges that computer science faculty and students face in TCUs and how they differ drastically from main stream institutions.
