Dean’s Faculty Advisory Committee
The Dean’s Faculty Advisory Committee comprises three faculty members who assist the Dean in making a broad array of administrative decisions.
The DFAC was restructured in 2017 to allow for more nimble and time-sensitive decision-making and to streamline faculty governance by addressing some issues outside the confines of faculty meetings.
Members of DFAC consult with other faculty members as appropriate, ensuring that those individuals with the greatest expertise and interest on specific policy questions share their insights as DFAC advises the Dean.
DFAC members serve three-year terms that are staggered to allow for a blend of continuity and change between academic years.
2019-20 Committee Members
Associate Clinical Professor
Dean’s Student Advisory Committee
The Dean’s Student Advisory Committee (DSAC) meets with the Dean of the School of Law once a month. Student Bar Association representatives from all classes and programs to discuss issues impacting students and student concerns.
The Dean also talks with them about matters she is aware will impact students, including if we are hiring faculty, tuition increases, building accessibility, class size, the school’s bar program.
The students can also serve as a sounding board if she is considering an issue that will impact students.
