Spring 2022 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, May 11th (Week 7) at 6:00 - 8:00 PM PT. The event will be fully in-person and hosted in the Mong Auditorium (in Engineering VI). There'll also be catered dinner after the event (you must fill out the Town Hall Survey to get dinner!). 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 teaching practices. The Spring Town Hall's focus is on your questions so we only have one survey. We use the answers to present problems to the CS department and guide the discussion. Survey responses are anonymous!
We need to hear your voice! Please answer this survey before the event.CS Town Hall Survey

Fall 2021 // Wednesday, November 10th 2021
In our Fall 2021 Town Hall, we continued the conversation on critical issues such as inclusion and curriculum reform with the CS department while empowering students to share their concerns with professors and the department's leadership.
