Dean's Advisory Council

The Dean's Advisory Council offers an independent, external business perspective in providing advice, guidance and review to the Dean of the College in key operational and strategic areas. The primary mission of the Dean's Advisory Council is to assist the Dean and the College in building and maintaining relationships with major constituency groups to advance the College and to enhance its overall reputation.

Many DAC Members have provided their areas of interest with the intention to assist Saunders College in those areas. Faculty, students, and alumni are encouraged to browse these interests and email Dana Pelliccia if they would like to connect with a DAC member for assistance with their studies, research, or as a guest speaker.
