See the exciting fields we support

The College of Applied Sciences and Arts programs offer unique hands-on training, with many of our majors providing internship opportunities so students are prepared to start a career as soon as they graduate. Watch the College of Applied Sciences and Arts informational video to see some of our students and faculty in action.

Student Affairs Committee (SAC)

The College of Applied Sciences and Arts values input from our students. Interim Dean Alice Hines or one of her associate deans meets regularly with the Student Affairs Committee to listen to student comments about their time on campus and to take suggestions on places to improve their experience.

The students involved in the SAC act as the liaisons between the department/school, the students, and the Dean's Office.

If you have questions, concerns, or issues that you would like to have addressed, contact your SAC representative (a fellow student).
