Operational Excellence is also looking for feedback on the initiatives. Please make time to put feedback on the things that are important to you as a student. In addition, if there is something in CNR that you have thought has made your experience different than other students in L&S or another major. We really want CNR student voices heard as we want to make sure the CNR student experience continues with our small college environment. You can provide positive and negative feedback or things you cherish and don't want to lose on: http://studentperspectives.berkeley.edu/.
