Dean's Circle

Photo of 2017-18 Dean Circle Members

The Dean's Circle consists of undergraduate students who represent the college’s six comprehensive departments: biological sciences, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, mathematics and statistics, physics, and psychology. The Dean’s Circle will meet with the Dean once a month during fall and spring semesters to discuss college-related issues that are high on the minds of College of Science and Mathematics students.

In addition to their major, the members of the Dean’s Circle were selected based on their interest, academic achievement, and leadership skills.

Check out STEMulations, the presentation and demonstration series presented by the Dean's Circle to highlight STEM fields with exciting and informative events.
