Recent studies have indicated that the number of women receiving computer science degrees is decreasing. The ACM reports a shocking 25.9% decline in the percentage of women earning bachelors degrees in computer science between the years of 1983 and 1996. This diminishing educational pipeline raises concerns as to whether the barriers that have discouraged women from pursuing computing interests in the past still exist today and whether the obstacles that are present in elementary education also exist at the university level. This project will explore the problems faced by female computer science students in higher education. We will examine past and current trends regarding the presence of women in undergraduate and graduate level computer science programs and will look at the efforts (or the lack thereof) taken by universities to address this dearth of female computer science students. We will also investigate the implications of this present trend if it continues. Finally, we will provide our own recommendations for addressing the problem.
