ECEP (Expanding Computing Education Pathways) is a National Science Foundation-funded Broadening Participation in Computing alliance to facilitate state-level computing education reforms. ECEP builds on five years of work by CAITE (Commonwealth Alliance for Information Technology Education) and Georgia Computes! Each has been successful in facilitating state-level systemic change that has improved the quality of computing education, broadened participation in computing, and increased the number of students in the pathway to computing and computing-intensive degrees. The ECEP Alliance includes 16 states – Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia - and Puerto Rico.
