CSEG Board Meeting 2011-02-15
Date: Feb 15, 2011 Present: Benji (President) Joho (Vice-President) Jesh (Vice-President) Nate (Outreach Rep) Anna (Tea Chair) Mona (Social Chair) Quang (Grad/Fac Rep) Shiwali (DCO Rep) Quentin (Fac Adv) Kaustubh (Secretary) Thomas Wenisch (Representing the GrAd-Hoc committee) Absent: Timur (IM Chair) Minutes: This meeting was essentially a presentation by Tom, on behalf of the GrAd-Hoc Committee, regarding the five proposed changes to the CSE PhD program requirements, that it had come up with. The aim of these changes is to accelerate the involvement of Ph.D. students in their research, to get them to match up with an advisor as soon as possible, and to make the course-load requirements more sensible for students from upcoming (interdisciplinary) labs (like UI), who don't get neatly sorted into the existing areas of study. The urgency of the presentation was due to a push to enforce some of the proposals by March 17 (probably around the time the new-student-visit happens). Any comments regarding the proposals can be sent to the GrAd-Hoc Committee. The agenda of the original meeting was postponed to be discussed to a next meeting.
