Call for Nominations for 2016-17 BSOS Diversity Advisory Council Student Representatives

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) is made up of BSOS faculty, staff, students, and administration. The DAC serves an advisory function for the dean on matters of diversity and inclusion within the College and University. The DAC also provides a forum for the exchange of diversity and inclusion information and discussion of matters pertinent to the college community. Student representatives will serve as full members of the committee. As a representative of the DAC, students will receive excellent leadership and networking experience as they work alongside college faculty, staff, administrators, and fellow students.

One undergraduate student must be a member of the Dean’s Student Advisory Council and one graduate student must be a member of the Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Council.
