Dean of Students Leadership Council

The Dean of Students Leadership Council (DOSLC) is comprised of both undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to improving the UH student experience. Serving in the capacity of student advocates, the DOSLC members seek to address common topics of concern among the student body and strategize proactive solutions to improving the student experience. Council members provide valuable insight to DOS staff regarding policies, programs, and procedures seeking to identify barriers and address them with campus stakeholders. The DOSLC engages students, staff, and faculty in various programs, outreach events, and dialogue to ensure the voice of every UH Cougar is heard!
