Dean's Undergraduate Advisory Board

The College of Education Dean’s Undergraduate Advisory Board represents the voices, concerns, and interests of the diverse undergraduate student body and serves as a direct line of communication between students and College of Education administration in an effort to improve the undergraduate student experience.

The board meets monthly with the dean to lend advice and support on matters of importance to the student body. The board also serves as a representative voice in sharing the hopes and concerns of the students with the dean. Each board member serves as an outreach source to gather student voices and bring them to the table for discussion. The job of the board is to provide a voice for all undergraduate students in the College of Education.

For more information or to get in touch with a board member, please contact the board advisor, Sara Knepper via email. Applications to join the board are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Hi my name is Lily, and I am studying Mild to Moderate! I choose this major because I love helping out people who need extra support. It has been a passion of mine for a while. I love to see the smiles on the students faces when you are able to be their advocate. I want to teach students how to overcome their own learning challenges, and share my tips and skills from when I was a student in Special Education and how it helped me succeed to become the well rounded leader that I am today. My favorite event that the COE holds is at Hounds and Hoagies Events. I went my freshman year and It was a great way to de-stress from my school work, and pet some dogs. I met some amazing students there. I really wanted to make sure that every student's voice was heard. I want to advocate for the students who need extra support, or are too shy to share their voices. I want to be the student who has her own learning challenges, and can make sure that other students get what they need to succeed. I want to make sure that all our programs are running the way they should be. If you need to reach me, you can email me.

Hello my name is Alex Kellerman. I am a senior at the University of Arizona majoring in Deaf Studies. I decided to apply for a position on the Dean's Advisory Board once my counselor told me about the opportunity. I have really grown to like being a part of this program because I feel like I am going to be making a difference on what decisions are made within the education department for all of the students that are a part of it. It is also very neat being the only freshman a part of it because I can give an insight that only a first year student can bring to the table. I look forward to seeing what great accomplishments that we can make as a team together. If you need to reach me, you can email me.
