Title: Computing Diversity in Higher Education in the 21st Century

Where: Arizone State University Tempe Campus at Memorial Union (MU) Room 242

Abstract: In an effort to address issues of diversity in admissions and employment, a data mining tool called Applications Quest was developed by Dr. Juan E. Gilbert. Applications Quest allows the use of race/ethnicity, gender or any other attributes to be considered in admissions, school assignments, employee hiring or any other application processing area, such that no preferences are given to race or gender.

About the Speaker. Dr. Juan E. Gilbert is the T-SYS Distinguished Professor in the Computer Science and Software Engineering Department and a Fellow in the Center for Governmental Services at Auburn University where he directs the Human-Centered Computing (HCC) Lab. He is also a National Associate of the National Research Council of the National Academies, an ACM Distinguished Speaker and a Senior Member of the IEEE Computer Society. http://juangilbert.com/
