Transforming the Culture of Computing at Carnegie Mellon
In 1995, the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) began
an effort to bring more women into its undergraduate computer science (CS) program.
At that time, just 7% (7 out of 96) of entering freshman computer science majors at
Carnegie Mellon were women. Five years later, in 1999, the percentage of women in the
entering class had increased fivefold to about 38% (50 out of 130).
