CSE Celebration

CSE Celebration

The CSE Celebration is a day-long event at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. This event recognizes the wealth of contributions from all the different kinds of people in our community. The event also provides a forum to discuss how we can continue to evolve to become a community of inclusive excellence. This annual event is led by the CSE Department's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) committee.
