|March 2022||Students accumulate student opinion and propose constructive ways to improve the Computer Science Department in JEDI related issues, including recommending the formation of a standing department committee.|
Initial members were selected by the unanimous decision of the student authors of the inclusivity proposal that first recommended the formation of such a committee. This was done to prioritize efficiency and productivity with strong intention to make a public application available to all students to fill the positions for next year which will be selected with strong preference for diversity and representation of the whole student body as specified in committee bylaws below.
