Distance and Extended Learning Student Advisory Committee (DELSAC)
About the Committee
DELSAC is a student-focused advisory committee overseen by the Office of Distance and Extended Learning
The Distance and Extended Learning Student Advisory Committee (DELSAC) recommends to the Office of Distance and Extended Learning (ODEL) ways to improve distance learning programs and services. This committee works towards service improvement through collaborative efforts with the Student Development Specialist II and the Director of ODEL. Student members will present and discuss concerns, innovative ideas, and improvement opportunities that can be utilized for continuous advancement of the department and distance learning programs and services at Texas State University.
DELSAC works collaboratively with the Distance Learning Steering Committee—through communication with the Chairs—to provide insight and ideas of improvement for distance learning at Texas State University.
Any current student taking classes through Texas State University who also has taken at least one online, hybrid, or distance learning course, may be eligible to become a member of DELSAC. This committee is comprised of a dynamic group of undergraduate and graduate students who are currently taking, or have taken, some form of distance learning courses. Each student will serve as a representative of their selected School and/or College.
Members are primarily selected based on nominations from faculty and/or staff at Texas State University. Students must maintain a Texas State University GPA of 2.0 in order to serve on this committee. This policy is set up to help ensure that academics are a top priority of the student.
If you are a faculty/staff member and would like to nominate a student for the committee, please reach out Kamarie Carter, Co-Chair for DELSAC, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a student who would like to serve as a member on the committee, please also email Kamarie Carter at email@example.com.
DELSAC meetings are held once a month during the long semesters for one hour. The committee also may meet once during the summer depending on committee needs.
