Directory of HBCU Computer Science Programs -- 1.7 forthcoming

Last update: Thursday 1/29/15 @ 9:07 pm

DLL Editor's Note -- Unfortunately, substantial data problems have surfaced again, so Version 1.6 of the Directory of HBCU Computer Science, Information Sciences, and Support Services Programs has been withdrawn for the second time.

As I explained to a couple of colleagues, I am concerned that the data that I extract from the IPEDS Data Center for 101 HBCUs in one table is not always the same as the data that I extract for individual HBCUs from the more user-friendly College Navigator Website that queries the IPEDS database.
