Fall 2021 Computer Science Town Hall

Ask questions and get your voice heard! The CS Town Hall is an opportunity for students to directly speak with professors and administrators in the CS department.

The upcoming Town Hall occurs on Wednesday, November 10th (Week 7) at 6:30 - 8:30 PM PT. The event will be hybrid: an in-person offering will be in the Mong Auditorium (in Engineering VI), while a livestreamed option with an online Q&A will also be available. To attend, please RSVP!

In past years, the Town Hall has been a huge driver of student feedback and improvements to curriculum; this includes:

  • The rework of CS35L (and CS97)
  • The start of engineering-wide ethics reform
  • More leniency around the sci-tech and tech breadth electives

The town hall is jointly held by ACM at UCLA, exploretech.la, UPE at UCLA, and the Department of Computer Science at UCLA.


We use pre-event surveys to gauge students' opinions on diversity & inclusion, academics and curriculum, and academic honesty. We use the answers to present problems to the CS department, and guide discussion. Survey responses are anonymous!

We need to hear your voice! Please answer these surveys before the event.

Past Town Halls

Winter 2021 // Wednesday, February 24th 2021

In our first ever fully-virtual town hall, we focused on three key topics: academics & curriculum, academic honesty, and a new section devoted to diversity & inclusion.
