Promoting communication and enhancing student experiences

The College of Arts & Sciences Student Advisory Council enables enthusiastic undergraduates to work with the Dean and the CAS leadership administrators to address concerns and work toward improvements within the college. The council was established to promote communication of relevant and helpful information between students and the college administration, with a goal of enhancing the educational experience for all CAS students.

Student members are responsible for attending the Advisory Council's meetings to discuss issues and concerns and to share their suggestions for possible initiatives. Any undergraduate who is interested in helping to improve the college and the experience it provides students may apply to become a council member.​
