Dr. Corey D. Schou is the University Professor of Informatics and the Associate Dean of the College of Business at Idaho State University. He has been involved in establishing computer security and information assurance training and standards for 25 years. His research interests include information assurance, ethics, privacy, and collaborative decision making. He was responsible for compiling and editing computer security standards and training materials for the Committee on National Security Systems.

Throughout his career, he has remained an active classroom teacher despite his research and service commitments. He is the founding director of the Informatics Research Institute and the National Information Assurance Training and Education Center (NIATEC) that was designated the National Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education.

In 1996, his research center was cited by the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) for Outstanding Contributions to the Security Profession and he was selected as the Educator of the Year by the Federal Information Systems Security Educators Association (FISSEA). In 2001, Schou was honored by (ISC)2 with the Tipton award for his work in professionalization and the development of the common body of knowledge in computer security.

Dr. Dr. Geoffrey FoxGeoffrey Fox has worked in a variety of applied computer science fields with his work on computational physics evolving into contributions to parallel computing initially involving the hypercube architecture. His publications  represent significant broad contributions to parallel computing. He has led activities to develop prototype high performance Java and Fortran compilers and their runtime support. He helped set up the Java Grande forum to encourage use of Java in large-scale computations. He has worked on the computing issues in several application areas currently focusing on Chemical Informatics, DoD Information systems  and Earthquake Science. Fox is working with the Minority Serving Institutions in systemic deployment of Cyberinfrastructure. This builds on a long standing interest in parallel computing and other applied computer science interdisciplinary curriculum .A major activity has been the use of Grid technologies to build collaboration systems and their application in an integrated approach to synchronous and asynchronous distance education. This includes a Web service framework for audio-video conferencing .
Dr. Fay Cobb Payton's research involves healthcare and digital equity in the context of information and communication technologies (ICT). This includes the discourse of inclusion and exclusion in ICT domains. Her dissertation topic and earlier research examined the design and implementation of regional health information networks along the data management issues impacting interorganizational networked environments. She also has explored the use of health information networks for homecare systems for persons living with AIDS/HIV and caregivers of Alzhemier's Disease patients. Her most recent works examine and include the following discourses:  AIDS/HIV online and media content targeting Black women and those in sub-Saharan Africa as well as health disparities;  Digital equity in STEM career pathways and public policy (using business analytic applications); Analytic/data management applications; Corporate and academic IT career experiences. 

She has worked with The PhD Project for over 10 years and serves in an advisory capacity to The PhD Project Information Systems Doctoral Student Association.

Panel Summary
Declining enrollment of US citizens in computing programs has reached crisis proportions. NSF, through programs such as Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) and CISE Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education (CPATH) reflect the severity of the problem. This panel will discuss challenges, issues and solutions to problems of enrollment, retention and recruitment of minority students in computing programs. We will also explore strategies for obtaining external funding through NSF and other sources. A driving question of this panel is whether there are HBCU-specific problem that require HBCU-specific solutions that are appropriate for BCP and CPATH funding.

A mission of ADMI is to give voice to matters of concern to computing programs at HBCUs. It is expected that this panel will stimulate consensus building and collaboration on strategies that address our needs, which may be unique to our collective mission. The findings of this panel may be used to inform funding agency proposal evaluation processes.
