We recently asked our community to participate in a Needs Assessment Survey.
We received a strong response from those invited (and a few new members) that is generally representative of the CSEdGrad community. Participants were asked to rate the potential value of a broad set of topics, their interest in several possible modes of delivery for these topics, and what modes of delivery might be best suited for certain topics. Overall, participants expressed strong interest in nearly every topic offered and generally favored face-to-face gatherings, special interest groups, a website with rich resources, and a few other supports, with a focus on purposeful interactions within and without the CSEdGrad community.
Here is a snapshot of what we learned (click to enlarge):
Participants of this survey earned an opportunity to give $100 to a charity of their choice. The organizations below were chosen at random and each received $100:
There were many other charitable organizations nominated by members of this community. We encourage you to visit these sites and see what is near and dear to some of our participants.
