Dean's Student Advisory Council


The Dean’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC) helps foster communication between students and the dean of the College of Social Science.  This group helps to express student needs and enrich student life on campus. 

DSAC consists of undergraduate students in good standing within a degree-granting program in the College of Social Science – one senior and one non-senior from each of the following units and programs (total 26):

  • Anthropology
  • Criminal Justice
  • Economics
  • Geography, Environment, and Spatial Sciences
  • History
  • Human Development and Family Studies
  • Human Resources and Labor Relations
  • Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science / Global and International Studies
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Social Work
  • Sociology
  • Urban and Regional Planning

 

What We Do

DSAC responsibilities include selection of the College of Social Science commencement speaker; selection of undergraduate representatives to those standing committees of the college governance on which undergraduate representation is appropriate; and consideration of college-level academic policy issues or similar matters on which the dean wishes to obtain varied and representative undergraduate opinion.

Some of the DSAC's past accomplishments include a review of the college’s website, collaboration with college advisors to enhance the student experience, enhanced web presence for the DSAC within the units. In addition, DSAC sends volunteers to assist with the Alumni Distinguished Scholarship Program, Marathon of Majors, Study Abroad Fair, Commencement and other College events.
