Originally established in 1905, Northwest Missouri State University is a state-assisted, four-year regional university that also offers graduate degree programs. Northwest is a true advocate of hands-on experience. For instance, in their Horace Mann Lab School students majoring in education get a true inside view of what teaching is all about. Northwest offers several other opportunities for hands-on experiences including internships, the University farm for agriculture majors, on-campus radio and television stations and volunteer work. Northwest currently has around 7,000 students. This size of campus offers great opportunities for students to succeed socially, as well as academically. With a student to teacher ratio of 21 to 1, students never feel like a number and receive personalized attention from faculty. The mission of the Department of Computer Science/Information Systems is to develop and enhance an individual's professional competence in the areas of computer and related technologies.
Northwestern University combines innovative teaching and pioneering research in a highly collaborative environment. It provides students and faculty exceptional opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth. Northwestern is recognized both nationally and internationally for the quality of its educational programs at all levels. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks the University's undergraduate programs among the best in the country.

The Mission of Nova Southeastern University, a private, not-for-profit institution, is to offer a diverse array of innovative academic programs that complement on-campus educational opportunities and resources with accessible distance learning programs to foster academic excellence, intellectual inquiry, leadership, research, and commitment to community through engagement of students and faculty members in a dynamic, life-long learning environment
As a state-supported institution of higher education, Oakland University has a three-fold mission. It offers instructional programs of high quality that lead to degrees at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels, as well as programs in continuing education; it advances knowledge and promotes the arts through research, scholarship, and creative activity; and it renders significant public service. In all its activities, the university strives to exemplify educational leadership in a diverse and inclusive environment.
Oakton Community College is dedicated, first, to excellence in teaching and learning. They challenge their students to experience the hard work and satisfaction of learning that leads to intellectual growth and support them academically, emotionally and socially. They expect their students to assume responsibility for their own learning, to exercise leadership and to apply ethical principles in their academic, work and personal lives. They provide education and training for and throughout a lifetime. They seek to improve and expand the services they offer in support of the people in the communities they serve. They promote a caring community of staff and faculty members, students, administrators and trustees who, in keeping with their values, work together to fulfill their mission.
Oberlin College, an independent coeducational institution, holds a distinguished place among American colleges and universities. Oberlin was the first college to grant undergraduate degrees to women and, historically, was a leader in the education of African Americans. The Oberlin community is known for its academic and musical excellence and its commitment to social engagement and diversity.
The college uniquely combines an outstanding professional school of music with a leading undergraduate college of arts and sciences. The Oberlin Conservatory of Music provides flexible programs to prepare students as professional musicians and teachers of music. Deeply committed to academic excellence, the College of Arts and Sciences offers a rich and balanced curriculum in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Within that framework the college expects that students will work closely with the faculty to design an educational program appropriate to their own particular interests, needs, and long-term goals.
At Occidental, the study of Computer Science emphasizes an understanding not only of the process of computing but also of the promise and limitations of computers within an intellectual, societal, and ethical framework. A minor in Computer Science can help prepare students for a variety of opportunities for subsequent employment or graduate work. Moreover, the minor can provide students with models of problem solving and theoretical constructs that can shed light on human intelligence and the workings of the mind.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering will impact the information age as a national leader in computing research and education. They will prepare computing graduates who are highly sought after, productive, and well-respected for their work, and who contribute to new developments in computing. They will give students in other disciplines an appropriate foundation in computing for their education, research, and experiences after graduation, consistent with computing's increasingly fundamental role in society. In their areas of research focus, they will contribute key ideas to the development of the computing basis of the information age, advancing the state of the art for the benefit of society, the State of Ohio, and The Ohio State University.
The Computer Science Department is located in the College of Arts and Sciences. The department offers Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees. The Department has an exceptional faculty that does research in many forefront areas of computer science including artificial Intelligence, databases and bioinformatics, computer architecture, gaming, graphics, machine vision, operating systems, networks, cryptography and security, software engineering, programming languages, quantum computing, theoretical computer science, and scientific computing. There is also research in the social aspects of computing and learning communities. They have programs in Stillwater and also in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the OSU-Tulsa campus.
