Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board

The Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board (CSAB) was created to share experiences, create suggestions and actively recruit underrepresented students in order to have a more representative student body. The group is supported by the Office of Admissions as well as the Office of the Chief Diversity Officer.

The group also supports the university’s retention efforts by working alongside diversity, equity and inclusion leaders to cultivate programs that enhance the campus’ cultural climate. CSAB leads an intercultural student group community building event, participates in the intercultural student group programming and supports the annual Diversity Celebration.
