Lecture: From fixing the women to liberating the men.

Dr. Jennifer Berdahl, Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia
Wed. March, 30th, 4:00-6:00 pm. 
STJ 3014, St. Jerome’s Classroom and Administration Building


Jennifer Berdahl from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia is visiting U. Waterloo March 29-31 and is giving a university-wide presentation on Wednesday, March 30th on gender in organizations. Dr. Berdahl is the first Montalbano Professorship in Leadership Studies: Women and Diversity at UBC’s Sauder School of Business, and is an internationally recognized scholar in the field of gender in organizations. She has advised Canadian parliament and informed Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her bestseller Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. 

In her talk, Dr. Berdahl will examine how various organizations have attempted to deal with gender – from trying to “fix” the women to changing the way that everyone thinks about men and women. Her impressive and influential research has shown that organizations that successfully integrate women are more successful than their competitors.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?

How about choosing CS 493 during course selection?

Want the chance to invent something and receive course credit? Want to refine your ideas for your start-up before you graduate? Want to win prizes?
CS 493/494 are the courses for you! Beginning in Fall 2018, CS majors will be able to take a two-course sequence that will take you from project ideation and selection to implementation and demonstration, to testing and a final “demo day”. Projects may range from new software systems, to contribute to existing open-source projects, to research projects. This will all be completed with a team of 3-5 members.
The first prize of $15K has been generously donated by CS alumnus, Sam Pasupalak, and the second prize of $10K has been provided by Microsoft. Prizes will be awarded as part of Demo Day at the end of CS 494.
