Computer Science: The Ever-Expanding Sphere

Slide68UW CSE’s Ed Lazowska received the following invitation from a colleague at UCSD’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering: “Our CSE department would like to invite you to visit as part of our Distinguished Lecture Series to give a talk on your department’s experience in growing diversity – we are both interested in demographics (increasing the number of women and underrepresented students and faculty) as well as diversity of thought (how your department has benefited from growth in non-traditional areas).”

Here is the result – pdf and pptx. Many of the slides will be difficult to interpret in isolation, but the statistics starting at slide 47 may be of interest.
