Universities assume that entering students possess computer skills and literacy. Universities then utilize these assumed skills by offering computer-based instruction, requiring research using the World Wide Web, offering online courses, and integrating computer utilization into many courses. Universities seldom stop to determine if required competencies exist uniformly across all students. Literature has shown that computer access and integration of computers into curricula have been significantly lower in student populations from ethnic minorities in K through 12 public schools. This study looks at access and utilization issues of students at an urban university across students of many different ethnicities to determine if discrepancies persist at the university level.
