Student Advisory Council
The College of Engineering Student Advisory Council provides a student perspective on planning and budgeting matters for the College of Engineering. The Council, which includes undergraduate and graduate students, meets monthly with the College of Engineering Dean or Associate Dean and select engineering staff. Both the Council and the leadership of the College provide discussion topics for the meetings.
In 2017-2018, key agenda topics included:
- College of Engineering budget
- Student space
- Administrative processes
