Dean’s Student Advisory Panel (DSAP)

The Dean’s Student Advisory Panel (DSAP) is an impressive group of students with diverse personal, academic interests, and experiences. As members of the panel, students give their feedback and perspective as the College considers new initiatives. DSAP meets on the fourth Tuesday each month during the school year.
