Thank you, Data Buddies! (Fall 2020)

CRA and CERP wish to thank the institutions and departments that distributed the 2020 annual Data Buddies Survey! A total of 145 institutions worked with CERP for the 2020 survey year, with 62 departments receiving “elite” status by obtaining a response rate of 20% or more.

The collective efforts of Data Buddies institutions enable CERP to provide resources to the computing community through research and evaluation focused on students’ experiences in computing degree programs. For example, CERP publishes monthly infographics and conducts research using Data Buddies data.

Is your institution listed below? If not, help the computing community by becoming a Data Buddy today! Joining is free and easy, and your department will receive a report every year you participate in the project. Check out our sample report here!
