Dean’s Leadership Council

The Dean’s Leadership Council (DLC) is comprised of both alumni and friends of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on the Camden campus. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is committed to excellence in research, teaching, and service. We expect to be and be recognized as one of the best small public urban research universities in the nation. We offer the small scale atmosphere of a first-rate liberal arts college with the resources of a major public research university. Working closely with the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the DLC seeks to support this vision.

The DLC’s primary role is to assist the Dean in building a successful development program and encourage strong private support of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. It raises the visibility and supports the goals of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences while providing strategic advice to the Dean for working to ensure the support of outside constituencies.

The DLC also helps to identify alumni, friends, organizations and corporations who have the potential to provide major gift support for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. It builds and provides leadership to a network of alumni and friends who can assist as volunteers to accomplish the vision of Faculty of Arts and Sciences through fundraising and related activities. In addition, the DLC assists in developing the interest of external stakeholders in the success of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences by such activities as providing introductions, hosting meetings and small events, and arranging for campus visits.

Currently, the DLC is focusing its fundraising efforts on five initiatives specific to enhancing the undergraduate experience on the Camden campus: Writers House, Honors College, Undergraduate Scholarships, International Studies and Undergraduate Research.
