Student Leadership & Advisory Council

Student Leadership & Advisory Council Members, 2015-16

The Student Leadership & Advisory Council is composed of students representing each department in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students are appointed in April of each year by their department chairs in consultation with the faculty to serve for a one-year term. Students may be rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors. Sophomores or juniors may serve for a second term. The Council will meet approximately twice a semester to provide advice to the dean about the programs of the College and assist with projects. Among the tasks of the Council are the following:
