A new, groundbreaking report describes how Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities are in an unrivaled position to remedy the technological disenfranchisement of the nation's emerging majority populations—the nation's future workforce—but remain limited due to lack of financial resources. While some minority-serving institutions (MSIs) have achieved impressive results in the application of technology, far too many have urgent needs that cannot be addressed without significant new investments. The report details the findings of the first-ever comprehensive national survey of MSIs commissioned by the Alliance for Equity in Higher Education to assess the overall status of information technology use at MSIs. The report also profiles six MSIs that have earned high praise for their creative information technology applications. Recommendations focus on how to invest in policies and programs that will help take MSIs to the next level in technology use.
