Abstract

Abstract: The advances in technology in higher education are significant. However, in this burgeoning technology environment, many minorities face the problems of Access, Inclusion and Underrepresentation. While some researchers report that the inequities based on race still continue (Cooper, 2006; Mullis, Mullis & Cornille, 2007), others argue that the digital divides are being bridged (Cotten & Jelenewicz, 2006). This study is designed to help determine if the digital divide still exists among minority college students. This study follows after the study conducted by Chisholm et al (1998) except that while their study investigated a single campus, this study will focus on four campuses that will include a Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), a tribal college, a Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) institution, and a predominantly white institution. It also differs from the study by Jones et al (2009) with the inclusion of minority institutions.
