Spend a Day with the Dean

Enter our Side by Side with the Dean contest by Feb. 9.

Classes. Internships. Club meetings — and that’s just one afternoon.

As a Humanities and Social Sciences student, you’ve got a busy schedule. Your dean, Jeff Braden, wants to learn what it’s like to be a student and also share what it’s like to be a dean.

So step right up and enter the “Side by Side with the Dean” contest. Tell us why the dean should experience your day, and why you’d like to walk in his shoes.

The contest winner will spend the day with Dean Braden on Wednesday, March 22. He’ll come to your classes, meetings, internship — whatever’s on your schedule that day. You’ll tend to the business of the college alongside the dean: meet with key campus leaders and donors, consider issues that affect the future of the college, and attend a special event featuring nationally-known activist and writer Anil Dash.   

This experience would not only look good on your resume, it’s also a unique opportunity to see what it’s like to walk a day in someone else’s shoes (not to mention hang out with the dean). To be eligible, applicants must be an undergraduate Humanities and Social Sciences major; be available on  the contest day, March 22; and should have at least two classes on your schedule for the day. To apply, fill out this form by Feb. 13.
