The Clarke College Computer Science Department will initiate three new members into Clarke’s beta chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon on Friday, Dec. 8, in Jansen Music Hall on the Clarke campus. The public is invited to attend. Upsilon Pi Epsilon is an international honor society for computer scientists. Clarke’s chapter was established in 1991.
New inductees will be students Brian Fenton, of Burlington, Iowa, and Jessica Munson, of Dubuque, Iowa, as well as Clarke Instructor of Computer Science Samira Towfic.
The mission of Upsilon Pi Epsilon is to recognize academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the computing and information disciplines. Members are chosen not only for their scholastic achievement in a computing science program, but also by distinguishing themselves at true professionals by meeting the standards of the society.
The goals of the society include: recognition of outstanding talent in the field of computing science, promotion of high scholarship in computing science, establishment and maintenance of high standards in computing science, representation of computing science in interdisciplinary communications, and encouragement of individual contributions to society through computing science.
