Dean and student leadership monthly meeting.
About Dean’s Leadership Meeting
Once a month the class officers from each class meet with the key administrators to discuss common and individual class issues. These sessions commonly result in strategies collaboratively developed by students and administrators to improve the overall student experience. The meetings are open, honest, and reportable action items are generated and assigned for investigation and/or resolution. The officers in turn report on class activities, accomplishments and issues that need to be addressed.
