The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business has formed a new leadership group that will represent student organizations and serve as an advisory to the college.
Jack Dodson, president of the newly formed Student Leadership Council and a senior management major, said the 22-member group meets monthly and seeks to improve student engagement, career readiness and professionalism among Haslam students.
“In the coming year, we would love to see more students get involved in student organizations, and for those student organizations to collaborate with one another,” Dodson said. “We hope to help students become more informed on current events within the college and encourage their involvement.”
Mark Willoughby, director of student engagement, described the Student Leadership Council as an opportunity for students to interface with college administrators and faculty.
“The council is comprised of student leaders from across the college,” Willoughby said. “Having students who are involved with the larger student body gives a more encompassing voice to the council and allows for an informed conversation of student needs and opinions. The Center for Student Engagement & Success is looking to enhance the Haslam student experience and the council has been a key component in developing new opportunities and ideas.”
Some of the student organizations represented include: AIM Accounting Alliance, Alpha Kappa Psi, American Marketing Association Student Chapter, Beta Alpha Psi, Business Analytics Society, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals, Center for Public Trust, Collegiate DECA, Delta Sigma Pi, Diverse Organization of Business Students, Economics Club, Financial Management Association, International Business Club, Management Society at The University of Tennessee, National Association of Black Accountants, Society for Human Resource Management, UT Investment Group, NeXxus and the Tennessee Capital Market Society.
