Numerous people were involved in the creation of this report, from providing feedback on early drafts of the CRA Enrollment Survey, to supplying data, to commenting on earlier versions of this report. We thank the following:

Ed Lazowska (University of Washington), Eric Roberts (Stanford University), and James Kurose (National Science Foundation) for first bringing attention to the widespread enrollment surge in computer science.

Andrew Bernat (CRA Executive Director) and the CRA Board for launching the CRA Enrollment Committee to investigate the CS community’s numerous questions about the surge.

Lida Beninson (The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) and Jan Cuny (National Science Foundation) for their advice as the work of the CRA Enrollment Committee’s Institution Subgroup got underway.

Duncan Buell (University of South Carolina), Ed Lazowska (University of Washington), Leen-Kiat Soh (University of Nebraska), Jane Stout (Computing Research Association), and Jodi Tims (Baldwin Wallace) for their participation on the CRA Enrollment Committee’s Student Subgroup. The Student Subgroup assisted the CRA Enrollment Committee’s Institution Subgroup in several ways, such as providing feedback on the CRA Enrollment Survey and offering suggestions on ways to improve this report.

Anne Condon (University of British Columbia) for evaluating the CRA Enrollment Survey from a Canadian’s perspective.
