Diversity and Inclusion
The computer science department is committed to diversity and inclusion, and strives to create a climate conducive to the success of women, students of color, students of any sexual orientation, and any other students who feel marginalized for any reason. Likewise, our course takes pride in providing an inclusive environment, and welcomes students of all backgrounds. If you feel you have been mistreated by another student, or by a member of the course staff, consider reaching out to one of student advocates on the CS department’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, or to Professor Greenwald or Professor Cetintemel (the CS department chair). We, the CS department, take all complaints seriously.
