College of Science Student Advisory Board (COSSAB)

With over 20 years of positive impact, student board members have played an important role in improving the College of Science. 


Established in 1997, the College of Science Student Advisory Board (COSSAB) serves as an active voice for all science and mathematic students. Board members serve as a liaison between students and the dean to provide an open line of communication. In addition, members sponsor events and work on projects to help make improvements within the college.
