Dean's Leadership Council

The Dean’s Leadership Council (DLC) establishes connections leading to a strong sense of community within the Gallogly College of Engineering through student-to-student interaction. This community is built through service, dedication, respect, and honesty toward others, engineering as a profession, the Gallogly College of Engineering, and the University of Oklahoma.

DLC Mentors 2016-2017

The Council members are engineering students with excellent academic credentials, leadership and communication skills. They serve as mentors to freshman and transfer engineering students, tutors for courses in engineering curricula, and student recruiters for prospective students interested in engineering. DLC members are selected through an application process. Interested students should attend one of the info sessions, dates listed below.

DLC Mentors contribute to the Gallogly College of Engineering by sharing the knowledge and skills gained through their college experience with new engineering students. They work closely with the members of the Gallogly College of Engineering administration, staff and faculty. DLC Mentors are assigned to one or two ENGR 1411 Project Sections. They execute interactive projects and activities with the new engineers. DLC Mentors assigned to ENGR 3410/3511 organize mentoring events for the whole class, and serve as mentor for the new transfer students.

Mentors attend all DLC training sessions and team meetings, two hours every two weeks. Mentors serve as positive, enthusiastic role models for engineers. They must be positive in attitude, work ethic and professionalism. They will exchange constructive feedback and information with other mentors and the DLC advisers. Mentors should also identify and encourage opportunities for students to become involved in the University community.
