Dean's Student Advisory Council

The Dean's Student Advisory Council (DSAC) is a group of students who represent a variety of majors in the college's different cognate areas. They serve as a liaison between the student body and the college administration, providing the Dean with student perspectives of current university issues and concerns. Members meet with the Dean and the academic advising office staff on a monthly basis. DSAC members are selected from students who have been nominated by faculty and staff.
