Seems to me it's time to start talking about whether the SIGCSE liberal arts committee wants to do another survey, and if so what should be in it.
Grant's survey last summer mainly concentrated on what computing programs look like at liberal arts colleges represented on this committee. The notes from SIGCSE 2017 suggest that there is a lot of interest in program profiles, so we might want to expand that study to a larger population.
Other interests I saw in the SIGCSE notes that might merit collecting data include...
- Faculty profiles (how many faculty, at what ranks, salaries, recruiting/retention, etc.)
- Research expectations (expectations for tenure/promotion, involvement of students in research, opportunities to publish, opportunities to collaborate, etc.)
- Student profiles (majors of students in CS courses, enrollments, student ages or class years, differences in patterns between intro and other courses, changes in patterns over time, etc.)
- Other program/curriculum aspects (frequency of course offerings, teaching loads, online vs face-to-face, service to other programs or gen ed, etc.)
