The Office of Undergraduate Education Student Advisory Board (SAB) works to enhance Duke’s undergraduate experience by providing valuabe insights to the vice provost and campus leadership. SAB members offer their counsel on a wide range of topics, including pressing campus concerns, strategies to improve the undergraduate experience and specific programming and communications.

Any student can ask to join the board by emailing victoria.pinedo@duke.edu.  We seek students who generally reflect the diverse demographics and interests of undergraduates as a whole. Members are expected to provide open, honest, and transparent feedback, while maintaining respectful and considerate interactions with other SAB members. Students are asked only to represent themselves and their own individual perspectives. They are not required nor expected to present or promote the views and values of any group, identity, or academic and professional interest on campus.

Meetings (online or in-person) are convened regularly throughout the academic year. Students who accept a position on the board are expected to attend and be mindfully present at all meetings, as well as to participate in email exchanges with OUE staff. Students are also be expected to maintain privacy and confidentiality regarding meetings or correspondence if so directed. Students might be asked to convene outside of regularly scheduled meetings if the need arises during the school year. The time commitment does not exceed six hours a semester.

For more information, please contact victoria.pinedo@duke.edu.
