BSOS Dean's Student Advisory Council (DSAC)

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) Dean’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC) is an undergraduate council that provides a forum for the exchange of information and discussion of matters pertinent to the undergraduate experience. Comprised of one voting representative from each of the College’s academic departments, one representative for the College’s Living and Learning Programs, and at least three but no more than five at-large committee representatives, the council meets weekly with the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education.

DSAC is charged with:
  • Coordinating programs among students, faculty, and alumni to facilitate and build relationships and foster a sense of community;
  • Evaluating University, College, and Department information and policies;
  • Hearing and voicing undergraduate student concerns to the Deans, Department Chairs, and Undergraduate Directors;
  • Educating students on academic policies and procedures; and,
  • Where appropriate, rallying students to actions.
DSAC is lead by five student officers, the DSAC Chair, and the four Vice Chairs of Student Services, Academics, Programming, and Outreach. 

Each year, a public call for nominations for new DSAC members is issued and officers are elected on an annual basis by the current DSAC members under the oversight of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education and DSAC Instructor. 

More information and meeting agendas are available from the DSAC Chair upon request.
