Harvey Mudd College
Computer Science Department Chair
Ran "RON" Libeskind-Hadas is the R. Michael Shanahan Professor at Harvey Mudd College where he also serves as the Department Chair. He previously served as Associate Dean of Faculty at Harvey Mudd where he worked on issues of diversity and helped develop a program to help students from traditionally under-represented groups make a successful transition to the college. He and his colleagues at Harvey Mudd have made efforts in the last several years to make computer science attractive and welcoming to all students and to young women in particular. As a result of these practices, Harvey Mudd has seen a significant rise in the percentage of women choosing to major in computer science: Increasing from about 15% (approximately the national average) to over 40% in the course of five years.
