» Provost Student Advisory Board


The mission of the Provost Student Advisory Board (PSAB) is to improve the quality of the undergraduate educational experience. The board, diverse in its makeup, will provide the Provost with insight into the undergraduate student experience, serving as a conduit for other students on campus. PSAB will expose the students to the administrative side of university decisions and facilitate a dialogue between students and administrators.

History of the Chancellor's Student Advisory Board

The first Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board convened in the 2008 Spring Semester. It evolved from an idea that Chancellor Daniele Struppa had proposed earlier in the 2007 Fall Semester. Chapman students were invited to write a one-page essay on what the Chancellor needed to know about student needs, and what advice they would give to the Chancellor, given that opportunity. Twenty exceptional essays were submitted and 10 members were chosen to serve on the Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board.

This diverse group of students met three times in the 2008 Spring Semester and they addressed topics such as financial aid, student advising, and registration. Guests to the meetings included Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services, Michael Pelly, Vice Chancellor of Undergraduate Education, Dr. Jeanne Gunner and Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students Jerry Price.
