Dean's Advisory Board (DAB)

DAB creates an opportunity for students to influence positive change on campus, celebrate student accomplishments, and help the Office of the Dean of Students set priorities and create initiatives. DAB is composed of student leader representatives (Associated Student Government, Tri-Council, Diversity Affairs Council, and Residence Hall Association) and at-large members who apply as individuals.

The board gives strategic direction to the Office of the Dean of Students and can help actualize the changes students want to see on campus. Additionally, the board assists in the Love & Honor Story Project, an initiative that highlights and celebrates student leaders who exemplify Miami values and the Code of Love & Honor.

Applications open each fall. In the case of a mid-year vacancy, a spring application will become available. All Miami students are welcome to apply. The DAB is comprised of students who are excited about bringing passion, love, and honor to the committee and to the broader campus community. If you are a change agent interested in contributing creativity, offering your leadership skills, and/or generating new programs or services on campus, please apply!

The board meets bi-weekly on Fridays throughout the academic year. Applications for the 2019 - 2020 academic year are now closed.

“As Dean, I have frequent conversations with students who share their interests and concerns. The board is a consistent way for me to stay connected to students and let them guide our initiatives and priorities. It really is my way of keeping the pulse on student and campus life.”

-Dr. Kimberly Moore, Dean of Students
