CSE SAC: Led by students, for students

Check out some of our recent activity below!

Testing Inequities for Students with Disabilities Report

In October 2020, SAC compiled a report detailing the testing inequities experienced by students with disabilities and gave suggestions for potential solutions. View our report below or visit this link.

Ethics Survey Analysis

In November 2019, SAC conducted a survey of the undergraduate population on ethics and technology. This report details our findings and recommendations. View our Ethics Survey Analysis below or visit this link.

Failure and Vulnerability Panel

We hope to decrease the stigma our department faces regarding failure and vulnerability through a panel of highly respected people and through small group and anonymous discussions afterwards. We also hope that you will reflect on your own relationships with failure and vulnerability in this event. Open to all CSE students, staff, and faculty.

You’ve probably heard multiple times that failure is a great opportunity and it isn’t something to be afraid or ashamed of. However, CSE has developed a culture of being extremely ambitious, and handling failure among a community of such high-performing peers is particularly difficult. Our high-achieving community can lead to lots of us feeling inadequate and that we don’t belong here. Often in CSE we overhear people talking about their accomplishments, but rarely do we talk about our experiences with failure (and, shocking as it may be, every single one of us has failed at some point).

If you would like to practice being vulnerable, visit here to find the handout that we sent out to help you reflect on the event and your own failure and vulnerability experiences.

CSE's Got Talent

Thank you for making the first ever CSE’s Got Talent live event a huge success! We were blown away by the talents, the variety, and the wholesome, supportive community atmosphere that came from all of you! Now that the live event is over, the virtual museum is publicly viewable! Admire the talents of more CSE community members as well as re-watch some of the talents that were showcased earlier. Feel free to share the link with family and friends!

COVID-19 and Alternative Finals Recommendation Letter

In March 2020, SAC sent a letter to faculty with alternative finals recommendations to ensure equitable testing policies during COVID. As a result, almost no Spring 2020 classes had tests. View our letter below or visit this link.
