Abstract: The large increases in the number of IS majors about ten years ago have been matched by equally large decreases in IS enrollments over the last few years. The authors used a survey of over 200 students to answer the question “what can faculty do to attract more IS majors?” This paper reports our results and provides several specific suggestions for directed efforts.

Keywords: IS recruitment, IS majors, University curricula, Information systems, Declining enrollments
