About CERP

The CRA’s Center for Evaluating the Research Pipeline (CERP) mission is to increase diversity in the field of computing research through evaluation and research. The center provides data resources and evaluation services to the computing community. CERP collects data from undergraduate and graduate students in computing through an annual national survey and surveys designed for specific programs. Using these data resources, CERP is able to conduct systematic evaluations of programs and workshops such as CRA-W’s Grad Cohort workshop, track career paths and outcomes of computing students, and make information on the state of the computing research talent pool available to the computing community.
