May 30, 2014: Jillian Aurisano - 2014 CS Graduate Student Service Award Winner

Congratulations to Jillian Aurisano, the recipient of the Computer Science department's CS Graduate Student Service Award for 2014. Jillian is finishing her MS this Summer and is part of the Outreach Team for Women in Computer Science (WICS). She was WiCS president in 2011. Here is what her nominator had to say about her:

"Jillian has been a tireless advocate for Women in Computer Science (WICS). She not only performs her "official" functions, she is involved in department-wide outreach efforts. For instance Jillian travelled to Lane Tech high school to reach out to their women in technology group. Jillian was one of the leaders in taking our group of 26 CS undergraduates to the Grace Hopper conference in Minneapolis in the Fall, and is helping with this next year's trip as well.

Jillian is also always thinking about changes that can help the whole system, not just women. Currently she is working on an idea for connecting undergraduate students with graduate student mentors."
