CFPCA's Dean's Delegates Program

Each year, several students are selected through an interview process to represent their major department as Dean’s Delegates. The delegates provide student outreach at on and off campus events. They act as an advisory board to the dean and work to enhance student relations. If you are interested in becoming a Dean’s Delegate, please email Kelly Driscoll at
