Talk Title: Nurturing Tomorrow\'s CS Leaders Together
Abstract: With the recent surge of interest in and increasing need for AI, machine learning, and data science, we computer scientists and engineers are poised to welcome the golden age of computer science and reimagine new opportunities together for tomorrow\'s CS leaders. We will equip students with a solid theoretical foundation, state-of-the-art technology, and high-level skills so they are ready to be leaders in this fast-developing discipline. We will do this while enhancing diversity and equity on and off campus; promoting inclusiveness; and fostering a vibrant research and teaching ecosystem in which faculty and students excel in their unique ways. We strive to remain a global leader pursuing excellence in computer science education, research, and service and to stay at the forefront of computer science with world-class faculty and strong, aspiring students, and all in a student-focused, faculty-led, ethical, and creative learning environment.
