Past & Present People in the HCI group:
It is an active goal of the HCI group to develop strong interpersonal ties and develop professional relationships between current and prior members. To facilitate this, all members, from undergrad through faculty level, are encouraged to participate in the HCI discussion class, and social events are often planned.
