Student Advisory Council

The CSA Student Advisory Council is comprised of a panel of students who work closely with CSE Department Chair, to coordinate various activities within the department, as well as discuss any departmental issues that may arise. The council acts as a liaison between the CSA student body and the faculty and administration, and gives students the opportunity to voice their opinions. Aside from providing an outlet for student ideas, the council is involved with community service projects.

In the past couple years, the CSE Student Advisory Council has:
