Computing is an integral part of all disciplines, and further, in today’s digital society, understanding of cybersecurity is critical to the safety of all citizens. Economic development in Mississippi is impacted by these issues, and growth is dependent on developing a work force with computing and technology skills. A longitudinal examination of the variables that affect self-efficacy in computing and persistence in CS education by gender, race, and socio-economic status will benefit intervention strategies.

Through a variety of collaborative efforts, programs are underway to provide greater opportunities for computing education for K-12 students, increase enrollment in appropriate post-secondary programs, and provide emerging and current workforce development opportunities. The development and growth of an innovative, technology-oriented workforce in Mississippi is imperative for the state’s long term economic prospects.
