On August 3, 2021, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced five new NSF INCLUDES Alliances, which will each address a critical broadening participation challenge in STEM at scale.
The CRA Center for Evaluating the Research Pipeline (CERP) will support one of the new INCLUDES Alliances as a consultant representing BPCnet.org, a clearinghouse for the community to learn about and engage with ongoing projects to address underrepresentation in Computing. Through this collaboration, CERP will work to expand the BPCnet.org Statistics and Data Hub, an online tool that currently provides computing-related data at the K-12 and postsecondary levels.
CERP is looking forward to supporting this new INCLUDES Alliance:
- NSF INCLUDES Alliance: Partnerships Launching Underrepresented Students:Northeastern University, Karl Reid, Claire Duggan, Richard Harris Michael Silevitch; Sage Fox Group Alan Peterfreund
