Student Advisory Council (SAC) is comprised of students who want to give feedback or to help implement changes within the Math Department. Every month, the SAC meets for one-hour to discuss some of the following:
Professor Review – this could include your thoughts on the professor’s teaching methods, the interaction between professor and students, the availability of the professor, etc. .
Course Review – this could include your thoughts on the course material, the textbooks used, testing, etc. .
Department Review – this could include your thoughts on what could the mathematics department do better to help you in your selected major, usefulness of the office staff in the department, ideas on better student advisement, etc. .
Facilities/Resources – this could include anything from letting the department know about broken equipment, your thoughts on the classroom and what could make it a better classroom, the resources available for professors to use and is it working in the classroom, etc.
SAC will also help provide service and leadership for several department events such as Pi Day, To Be or Not to Be, and other social student activities.
One doesn’t have to be a major in Mathematics to be on this committee.in fact, all different majors are welcomed who take any mathematics classes. This is a great opportunity for resume building in areas of service and leadership by being on a Student Advisory Committee
Every month, SAC will meet for a one-hour meeting with myself, my assistant, Jennifer Maroney and a few other staff members to discuss new feedback, discuss implementation of recommended changes, event planning, and overall issues that need to be addressed.
