MCS Dean's SAC

The MCS Dean's Student Advisory Council (SAC) was created to act as the representative liaison between MCS students and administration.  Their intention is to promote unity among departments, promote MCS college pride, and provide support for students at all levels of their academic career.  Events supported by the MCS Dean's SAC are listed on the MCS Facebook Group and the MCS Facebook Page has college-wide events and news.

Departmental Student Advisory Committees (SAC)

Departmental Student Advisory Committees provide the departments with student input for proposed curriculum changes, new programs, and other matters of concern. If you are interested in becoming a student representative, contact your departmental advisor.

The BioSAC is a very active group within the Mellon College of Science and coordinates fun and engaging events such as their annual Murder Mystery evening, that is written and acted by Biological Sciences students. If you'd like to participate in the BioSAC, email the Biology advisor Dr. Maggie Braun.
