The Arts and Sciences Advisory Council for Students (ASACS) is seeking applicants!

ASACS is an advisory council for the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences that consists of approximately 10 undergraduates and 2 graduate students. We meet regularly with Dean Stacey to provide student perspective, input, and recommendations on College-level decision making regarding budgets and policies pertaining to our college. We discuss a wide range of issues decided on by our council. We have submitted recommendations to both the Dean and the Provost Advisory Committee for Students (PACS) on issues like merit based faculty salary increases, the number of teaching assistants in the college, online course evaluations, creation of a new Life Sciences building, and the review of course fees. We meet weekly on Fridays from 3:30pm-5:00pm in the Dean's Office (CMU 065).

We are currently seeking motivated and engaging undergraduates and graduate students to apply for the 2015-2016 school year. We are looking for students from all disciplines, perspectives, and grade levels.

By being a member of ASACS you can:

  • Gain leadership experience
  • Serve your community
  • Have your voice heard
  • Make a real impact on campus
  • Learn more about the policies and budgets that shape the UW College of Arts and Sciences
