Biographical or Historical Information

The Department of Computer Science was created in 2006 when the Department of Mathematical Sciences was split into two units: the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Computer Science. While the department is relatively new as an administrative unit, the courses and degree programs are high quality and mature, with a B.S. program offered since 1991 and an M.S. degree program offered since 1998. Computer science courses existed for over a decade prior to that as part of a computer science concentration within the mathematics B.S. degree. Department faculty have been with UNCG for as many as 20 years, giving continuity to instructional and research activities.

Abstract

The Department of Computer Science was created in 2006 when the Department of Mathematical Sciences was split into two units: the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Computer Science. While the department is relatively new as an administrative unit, the courses and degree programs are high quality and mature, with a B.S. program offered since 1991 and an M.S. degree program offered since 1998. Computer science courses existed for over a decade prior to that as part of a computer science concentration within the mathematics B.S. degree. Department faculty have been with UNCG for as many as 20 years, giving continuity to instructional and research activities.

This record group consists of accreditation realted materials dating from 2000 to 2003 and an archive of the department's website.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at scua@uncg.edu if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
