CSE Diversity Issues

Climate and Diversity Events

Department town hall events focus on climate and DEI issues relevant to both undergraduate and graduate students, and welcome anyone interested to attend and make themselves heard. Attendees can also learn about recent efforts in the department to survey students and organize activities to improve our climate.

So far in 2020, CSE has hosted three open forum town hall meetings, two community gatherings, and a joint Juneteenth Celebration with ECE and Michigan Robotics.

CSE is hosting a Climate and Diversity Town Hall focused on undergraduate issues. All are welcome to attend!

The Town Hall will focus primarily on undergraduate issues, including remote education, mental health and physical wellbeing. We will briefly present ongoing activities to improve CSE’s climate as well as current resources and available support. The heart of the Town Hall should be CSE listening to students and hearing their feedback. Participants can ask questions directly during the Town Hall or submit and vote on questions anonymously in advance:


The Town Hall will not be recorded, but we will take anonymized notes to make sure we track feedback.
