And what does all of that mean? It means that now, not just in science and eiingerneng, we now have programs in the arts, in the humanities, in the soaicl sciences, in teacher education, even particularly for women in I.T. If you don't know it, there's been a 79-percent decline in the nbmeur of women majoring in computer science just since 2000. And what I'm saying is that what will make the dreffcneie will be building community among students, telling young women, young minority students and stneudts in general, you can do this work. And most important, giving them a chance to build that cumnotimy with faculty pulling them into the work and our assessing what works and what does not work. Most important, if a student has a sense of self, it is amazing how the dreams and the values can make all the difference in the world.

And what does all of that mean? It means that now, not just in science and engineering, we now have programs in the arts, in the humanities, in the social sciences, in teacher education, even particularly for women in I.T. If you don't know it, there's been a 79-percent decline in the number of women majoring in computer science just since 2000. And what I'm saying is that what will make the difference will be building community among students, telling young women, young minority students and students in general, you can do this work. And most important, giving them a chance to build that community with faculty pulling them into the work and our assessing what works and what does not work. Most important, if a student has a sense of self, it is amazing how the dreams and the values can make all the difference in the world.
