Thank you, Data Buddies!

CRA and CERP wish to thank the departments who distributed CERP’s Data Buddies survey during the fall/winter of 2018. These departments’ collective effort enables CERP to provide resources to the computing community through research and evaluation focused on students’ experiences in computing degree programs. For instance, CERP publishes monthly infographics and conducts research using Data Buddies data.

Special thanks to the 41 Elite Data Buddies Departments, who have at least a 20% response rate from their students.
