CFPCA's Dean's Delegates Program
Selected students from the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts (CFPCA) represent their department/major as leaders for the college and university. Students receive a scholarship for leadership training and experience. Students serve on the leadership committee and represent their department and major in suggested activities such as college and university level functions, Dean's advisory panel, student-to-student communication and community engagement. Committee participation may include direct involvement with recruitment, retention, and development activities, focus groups, marketing, social media practices and customer service development. Potential leadership scholars apply through the dean's office.
