Dean's Student Advisory Council

DSAC

The Dean’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC) of the Rollins College of Business is a group of 20 undergraduate student representatives who serve as an advisory group to the dean of the college and his or her staff. In addition, the group serves as ambassadors for the college. Students must apply for the DSAC at the beginning of the fall semester and are chosen through an interview process.  

The students meet with the Dean to give him their thoughts and opinions on various issues (committees about classroom use space, College of Business Strategic Plan, etc.).  They also assist with the College for events and recruiting.
