DSAC Mission Statement

As the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management is ever-growing and ever-evolving, this team of students was established in Spring 2022 with the express purpose of advising the Dyson Dean and other school leaders on the issues that matter most to our undergraduate students.

Our main objectives are to:

  1. Listen broadly to Dyson undergraduate students from different backgrounds and experiences to ensure that students feel their voices are heard and their opinions matter
  2. Represent and communicate with key Dyson student organizations and stakeholders and act as a bridge between the undergraduate student body and the Dean’s office
  3. Initiate and support plans, proposals, and actions to improve the Dyson student experience holistically
