A message from the CS advisors:
As your advisors, we want to be clear with our students that we are committed to creating an inclusive, equitable, and safe environment for our campus community. We value our students’ identities and recognize the racist and oppressive systems in higher education that create challenges and pain that conflict with our commitment to our students. As advisors, we stand in solidarity with our students as we all tackle racist systems that create barriers to accessing a quality and safe educational environment.
We remain committed to evaluating ourselves, our privilege, and our advising practices to improve the student experience in the Computer Sciences Department and at UW-Madison. As part of our actions to dismantle oppressive systems, we are committed to providing our students a space to share their experiences, to be heard, and to be helped to the best of our ability. Our advising goes beyond just answering academic questions. We want you to know: We support you. You belong. You matter.
– Shelby, C-M, Kayla, Michael and Allison
