Booming Enrollments

Admissions Office sign


At the Computing Research Association (CRA) Snowbird conference in 2014, Jim Kurose (then at University of Massachusetts-Amherst) and Ed Lazowska (University of Washington) presented a session on burgeoning enrollments in U.S. computing courses. In response, CRA's Board formed a committee to further study enrollment-related issues, chaired by CRA board member Tracy Camp.

A panel on the upsurge in undergraduate computer science (CS) enrollments in the U.S. took place at the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education Technical Symposium last year (SIGCSE 2015); shortly thereafter, the full committee went to work with the goal of measuring, assessing, and better understanding enrollment trends and their impact, with a special focus on diversity.
