I will have to make sure I connect with Maria Klawe when my research begins. This is from the ASEE aggregator:
In USA Today (11/2, Tadic) Nenad Tadic, a senior at Emory University wrote that, in 2005, when Maria Klawe became president of Harvey Mudd College ten percent of graduates with computer science degrees were female. By 2011, 40 percent of computer science graduates were women. Klawe said the college “fosters a collaborative and supportive environment, one that starts the minute students are enrolled.” Columbia University’s Women in Computer Science program hosts female speakers in the technology industry. Also, the program runs “a graduate-undergraduate mentorship program to aid underclassmen women in anything from study methods to applying for jobs.”
