Staff

The CS staff is committed to helping our students handle all their non-academic requirements smoothly and expeditiously.

Although academic advising resides primarily in the hands of the faculty, the support and advice our students receive from the experienced staff of the Office of Student Services is integral to ensuring that our students navigate their college years as easily as possible. Career services provides help with obtaining pre-professional work, career planning, networking and researching graduate programs. Our Outreach and Diversity staff strive to involve potential students in the world of engineering, mathematics and computer science while increasing the number of women and minority students in our programs, creating a dynamic student body.
