School of Engineering Deans Graduate Student Advisory Council (DGSAC)

The Stanford Engineering Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Council (DGSAC) exists to work toward a school where all graduate students are empowered to grow as future scholars and global citizens, regardless of educational background, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, or religion.  The Council is a crucial part of the school’s initial efforts to increase transparency and flow of communication between our graduate students and deans. The inaugural 2019-20 Council was made up of 20 graduate student representatives from across all nine academic departments and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) . These students have been active leaders in advocating for and creating positive change for graduate students in the School of Engineering.  2020-21 Council applications open in September. Contact Lourdes Andrade.
