Computer Science Dept. Czars


As you might guess, these are not the department's personal Russian emperors. Rather, a "czar" is a member of the department who is providing a service to the department as a volunteer.

There is no requirement that students act as czars, but the work that czars do helps the department run smoothly and everybody benefits in some way from the czar system, so you are urged to take on czarships occasionally to carry your share of the burden of department work.

If there is a czarship that you think should be created (particularly if you would be willing to take it on yourself at the beginning), contact the Czar Czar (currently Jonathan P. Chang, [hover to see e-mail address]) and let him know.

Spring 2021 Update: As of the Spring 2021 semester, the desk czar position has been phased out, as desk assignment decisions are now handled by the department. Thus, questions regarding desk assignment should be directed to the department rather than to the czars.
