Message from the Chair
We are in the midst of a busy spring quarter and in this issue of our CSE Newsletter I am pleased to share the continued recognition and acclaim our faculty and students are receiving across campus and in their fields.
As department chair, it was incredibly gratifying to see the number of you who attended and participated in our first Diversity Day (you’ll find a recap of this successful day below). A reminder to share newsworthy items, story ideas and comments with our CSE Communications Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
