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.

CoSM Emgagement Mentoring Program (C-SEMP)

C-SEMP is more than a one-day event.  It is a structured transition program that provides mentoring throughout the entire first year of a student’s college journey.

If you are a CoSM student interested in being matched with a mentor to help coach and guide you through your student career journey then please take a moment to complete the "Mentee" survey.

If you are CoSM faculty, staff, or a student who has completed your freshmen year and would like to coach an in-coming freshman through their student career journey, then please complete the "Mentor" survey.

Visit the C-Semp webpage for more information. 


If you are interested in joining the Dean's Circle, applications will be accepted each spring term. This year's applications deadline has ended. Please watch for announcements or check this page in the spring for 2019 application details.

Interested students should submit:

  • a nice headshot photo - professional, not a selfie
  • completed CoSM Dean's Circle application

You may drop off photo and applications at the Deans office in 134 Oelman Hall or send your photo and applications as an email attachment to Dean’s Circle Advisor, Jacqui Neal (


Assistant Dean Jacqueline Neal serves as the group’s advisor.


To learn more about concerns of undergraduate students in the college, in 2008, Dean Wheatly established a new student advisory board called the Dean’s Circle.

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