About Us

The Dean's Student Advisory Committee brings the Deans of the Grainger College of Engineering and the student body together to address the concerns shared by both parties. We collaborate with administration to improve the overall culture of the College through a focus of inclusion, mental health, and overall transparency of the organization.

Our Events

Dean's Dinner
DSAC is running a program called Dean’s Dinner where all of the Engineering Council’s RSO executive board will be invited to attend a dinner with the Deans. This event will be a way for students to voice their concerns regarding the university and network with other organizations. There will be more information coming soon, please email Tyler Graham at tlgraha2@illinois.edu if you have any questions.

Dean's Last Lecture
The Deans Student Advisory Committee is running a program called Dean’s Last Lecture where a Dean will prepare an hour-long presentation on their lives. It will oftentimes cover why they choose to be a professor/dean, their personal life and obstacles they have crossed along the way. There will be free food and a wonderful story to be heard.

DSAC Lunches
DSAC is ready to start a new year off with some DSAC lunches. Sign up, and get to know your Deans! (Not to mention free lunch!) Lunches are usually on Wednesdays and Fridays from 12PM - 1PM. Check back here at a later date to sign up.
