Class Values


This is an inclusive classroom. Everybody has a name and a pronoun. We are committed to referring to you with the correct pronoun. Please feel free to correct us if we make a mistake.

Students with Documented Disabilities

Students who may need an academic accommodation based on the impact of a disability must initiate the request with the Office of Accessible Education (OAE). Professional staff will evaluate the request with required documentation, recommend reasonable accommodations, and prepare an Accommodation Letter for faculty dated in the current quarter in which the request is being made. Students should contact the OAE as soon as possible since timely notice is needed to coordinate accommodations. The OAE is located at 563 Salvatierra Walk (phone: 723-1066, website)

Supportive Course Environment

In a feedback driven design class, we aim to foster a class environment where we can learn together through constructive feedback. CS 377E is organized around the following principles for interactions:

  • Listening actively by respecting others when they are talking
  • Participating to the fullest of our abilities, since community growth depends on the inclusion of every individual voice
  • Helping self and peers to become more self reflective
  • Supporting one another if someone needs clarification, a chance to speak, a chance to quietly gather thoughts, or time to reflect before responding to a question
