IUPUI's James Hill among youngest African-American tenured professors in computer science
INDIANAPOLIS -- Hill gained that distinction in August, when his tenure appointment in the School of Science took effect. At the time, he was 33 years and five months old. Because of differences in complex university systems, it is challenging to say who is the youngest African-American to become a tenured professor in computer science, but all indications are that Hill is among the two or three youngest to achieve that mark.
The thought that he might attain this distinction came up as he was about to receive his doctorate at Vanderbilt University in 2009.
