College of Engineering Student Advisory Council 2014-15

The College of Engineering Student Advisory Council (COESAC) is seeking nominations, including self-nominations, of students who would be interested in serving on the Council for the 2014-15 academic year.  

Deadline: October 31st, 2014

                COESAC provides a student perspective on planning and budgeting issues for the College of Engineering.  The group, which consists of approximately 12 undergraduates, 5 graduate students, and 3 at-large representatives, meets on Friday afternoons from 3:30-5:00 in the COE Dean’s conference room to discuss a broad range of issues.  During the 2013-14 academic year, COESAC submitted recommendations the Dean on issues ranging from changing the admissions model for UW COE departments to providing opportunities for multi-disciplinary capstones.  COESAC seeks to include a diverse range of student perspectives in its conversations, and to bring about tangible changes to the student experience in the College of Engineering. 
                The time commitment involved in serving on COESAC is significant.  The Council meets at least once a month, and will often generate its own agenda.  Students should be self-motivated to provide a student voice on issues facing the College.  The Dean will provide a charge to the Council at the beginning of the year and will come to the Council with planning questions for student input, but the Council will also be asked to identify one to two areas of need within the College and work independently on proposals for solving that need.  Applicants should ensure that they are available to meet on Friday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:00 for the duration of the academic year.  It has proved just too difficult to schedule meetings at any other time.  Dean Bragg or his designee will attend most of the Council’s meetings, except when the Council chooses to meet without him.  Although Council members are not strictly “representatives” of any particular student group (that is the role of ASUW), they are encouraged to solicit and present to the Council the views of as wide a cross-section of students as possible.
Students interested in applying to be members of COESAC for the 2014-15 academic year, should submit an application via Catalyst (above), detailing their qualifications for serving on the Council. 

Councilmember Duties

Student Advisory Councilmember Terms of Service:
  • Councilmembers will serve 1-year terms with 1-year reappointment possible.
  • Staggered terms (i.e., some will proceed for re-appointment at end of first year. The council will ask for volunteers to serve an additional year or end terms as needed for staggered terms.
  • Reappointment does not require a new application.
  • Total annual commitment: minimum 35-45 hours, including meeting time, preparation for meetings, and follow-through work arising from decisions at meetings.

Meeting Schedule:
  • Monthly meetings, except summer quarter (~8/year).
  • Standing meeting time set annually (1.5 hours/meeting).
  • Dean’s Office staff will attend meetings depending on agenda.
  • The Dean or his designee will likely attend most meetings as well, depending on schedules and the agenda.

Key topics that may be addressed annually by the Student Advisory Council:
  • Budget issues and planning
  • Student recruitment and retention (focus on increasing diversity)
  • Student engagement outside of the classroom
  • Course fees
  • Academic Programs (new programs and expansion of existing programs)
