Deans' Student Advisory Circle

The Deans’ Student Advisory Circle (DSAC) serves as a direct line of communication between students and the Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics (Dr. Christopher Meyer) and Associate Dean (Dr. Alam Hasson). The Dean’s Student Advisory Circle strives to bring about innovative changes to the college and lobbies on behalf of the CSM students on university-wide issues. Members often develop surveys and use survey results to make recommendations to present to the dean to affect change in common areas of interest to students.
