This might involve endorsing clubs related to our field or initiating new groups tailored to the unique interests present within our department. Furthermore, I plan to improve the lines of communication between the computer science student body and the university’s administration. Implementing a system for students to express their feedback, coupled with my presence in administrative meetings to voice our collective needs and aspirations of computer science students, aiding them in achieving academic success and preparing them for the future.

It’s important that each person’s contribution is acknowledged and valued. Additionally, fostering a spirit of cooperation and team dynamics among the members of the UWSA Board, the broader membership, and the administration of UWindsor is crucial.
