Leadership

EE Jones Fine Arts Leadership House EE Jones Fine Arts Leadership House

The College of Fine Arts Emerging Leaders program assists our undergraduate students in creating and participating in leadership opportunities both on campus and off. There are four major components to the program.

Student Advisory Committee (SAC)

SACs are student groups established within each department to promote communication and interaction among students, faculty, staff, and administrators. They are led by the SAC Chair at the undergraduate, and if applicable, graduate level. Under the leadership of the chair(s), SACs provide students with more opportunities to offer their voices and perspectives at the departmental level. SACs are both a social and an academic organization within their department and as such they advance involvement opportunities, encourage participation in departmental activities, and work together with others to build campus community.

Some of the ROLES of the SACs are to:

  • Promote academic and social activities
  • Encourage collaboration with other student organizations
  • Provide service opportunities
  • Assist in the faculty RPT process
  • Build campus community at the University

CFA SAC CHAIRS have the following responsibilities to the College of Fine Arts:

  • Primary leader and contact among the Dean’s Office, ASUU and the students in their units
  • Organizers of departmental SAC Open House
  • Voting members of the CFA College Council
  • Coordinators of the departmental SAC Retention Promotion & Tenure (RPT) reports
  • Voting members of the Fine Arts Fee Grants Funding Committee (FAFG)
  • Leaders in the annual SAC leadership transition
  • Committee members in the selection of the CFA Convocation Speaker

Each CFA SAC Chair who fulfills the additional responsibilities required by the College of Fine Arts will receive $500 for the academic year.
