Engineering Graduate Studies Student Advisory Committee (EGSSAC)

EGSSAC committee

The Engineering Graduate Studies Student Advisory Committee (EGSSAC) was established in fall 2022, at the request of the Associate Dean Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs, as a vehicle for student feedback to the Dean of Engineering Office. It also provides a forum for discussing graduate student issues, and to represent their concerns.

The Engineering Graduate Studies Student Advisory Committee consists of the Associate Dean GSPA of Engineering and a total of 20 elected, or appointed members, where no individuals step forward for election. All Full-time Graduate program students are eligible to serve on this committee.
