ACM / CRA / IEEE-CS Joint Coalition to Diversify Computing

To encourage increased numbers of minority students in computing disciplines and careers, ACM, IEEE-CS and the Computing Research Association (CRA) joined together to create the Coalition to Diversity Computing (CDC). CDC's goals include: 

  • Recruitment of minority undergraduates to Masters and Ph.D. programs;
  • Retention of minority graduate students enrolled in Masters and Ph.D. programs; and
  • Transition of minority Masters and Ph.D. graduates into academia and industry. 


The mission of the CDC is to address the shortfall in computing professionals through the development of a diverse community that can effectively meet the computing demands of an evolving society.

With a diversity of members from academia, industry and government, these three member societies bring different perspectives and approaches to meeting the above goals.
