From time to time we work with the School of Computer Science. This page documents the various interactions for future exec.

Meetings with the Director

As of W09 we have monthly meetings set up with the Associate Director on the third Monday of every month. This was picked so that we could have new Executives in place for the first meeting of a term. Get in touch with the director (currently Mark Giesbrecht at x36582) when you get elected to pick a time. These meetings are useful to discuss the current state of the curriculum, school wide things, SCS-CSC cooperation, and the money that they give us. The AD's time is usually valuable so prepare yourself for the meetings. SCS likes us a lot as of this writing, continue the good relationship.

Things that the AD will do at present: listen to your complaints regarding the state of the curriculum, put the SCS logo on invitation letters to potential speaker, give you money.


SCS in F08 under Jay Black made a tentative commitment to a 10k/year operating budget for the CSC from SCS. We've submitted a proposal for the coming fiscal year but we may not get that amount due to the economic downturn. Feedback on this will be posted here with the details of what was funded.

To get reimbursement contact the SCS Financial Officer (Anne Turnbull at present) wit the request, she will give you University Accounts if they're needed for A.V., theater booking, or purchasing. She can also answer questions you have regarding the various forms you may need to fill out to get money.

The SCS Office

The SCS office handles keys for the CSC office and booking of rooms under jurisdiction of SCS on behalf of the CSC. As of this writing, SCS office staff are very busy, and have no time to deal with matters other than those listed here.
