Dean's Student Advisory Board
The Dean’s Student Advisory Board (DSAB) for the College of Liberal Arts (COLA) is a student run organization that advocates for the needs of students at Wright State. First and foremost, the board is committed to working with the Dean to address any issue a COLA student may have.
Beyond helping Wright State students, DSAB is also involved in philanthropic efforts. One example is an event held in April 2013 that connected local groups in combating human trafficking. Aided by other student organizations such as Student Government and Rainbow Alliance, the event also raised five hundred dollars in donations.
Students interested in becoming a member of DSAB may pick up applications in 120 Millett Hall or by emailing Lakeysha Catron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
