Dean's Circle Students

The Dean’s Circle is an advisory group of students chosen to meet with the Dean at least once a semester and discuss matters of interest to them related to the School of Science and Mathematics. There is a separate group for undergraduates and for graduate students. One student per department (for each group) will be nominated by the department head; nominees should be academically in good standing and have already expressed an interest in serving on the Dean’s Circle.
