Computer Systems Institute (CSI) is proud to announce a new initiative that gives students a voice on important issues taking place across our six campuses in Illinois and Massachusetts: The Student Advisory Board!

The Student Advisory Board is comprised of four students who advocate for the interests and success of all CSI students. The board members participate in biweekly meetings where they share opinions and ideas to improve the student experience and the services provided to them in collaboration with the Student Affairs team. Their responsibilities include:

  • Providing feedback and collaborating to improve participation in campus events.
  • Ensuring students’ needs and concerns are met.
  • Offering ideas on how to create a more engaging experience for diverse students.

Making Strides

With several meetings under their belts, your Student Advisory Board members are already making an impact. They have discussed opportunities to expand New Student Orientation to include topics that reflect CSI’s diverse student body, as well as how to promote resources that help students navigate the CSI experience.

As they meet every other week, the Board will continue discussing these topics and many others.
