Dean of the College Student Advisory Board


The Student Advisory Committee provides the Dean of the College with advice on student concerns related to campus life. As requested, the committee convenes to discuss new initiatives, emergent issues, and strategies to improve the undergraduate experience.

For much of the 2020-2021 academic year, the committee will consider campus life issues, particularly in light of COVID-19. The committee will have insight into planning processes and will be able to provide holistic feedback that represents the concerns and perspectives of the broader student body.

Complementing other student governance organizations, the committee serves to ensure that student's voices are represented in the on-campus and remote planning processes and will work together with college administrators and staff to address concerns about daily student life in light of COVID-19.

The committee includes twelve undergraduate students from a variety of class years, representing a broad diversity of perspectives with regards to student life on campus.  Members are expected to provide open, honest, and transparent feedback.

The Associate Dean for Student Life and other Student Affairs staff serve as liaisons to the committee.  Additional individuals from across the college may attend committee meetings as invited guests.
