PSD students participate in divisional social programming through the PSD Social Committee, as well as advising the Deans on student issues through the Deans' Student Advisory Committee and representing PSD students to the Student Government through Graduate Council.
DSAC consists of a graduate student representative from each program in the PSD and Deputy Dean, Mike Hopkins, and Dean of Students, Miranda Swanson. Discussion is typically lively, candid, and wide-ranging. Committee meetings give PSD students an advisory voice in the division's administration and an opportunity to comment on how institutional policies and plans affect student life. Likewise, they provide the deans with an opportunity to explain institutional policies to the students and to learn first-hand about student concerns.
Contact your program's representatives with any issues you think should be brought to the PSD Deans.
