SOLA Dean’s Advisory Board

The SOLA Dean's Advisory Board is committed to advocating for SOLA, advancing our work, and accelerating our students' post-graduation success. Board members serve as anchor plates for the School of Liberal Arts by connecting us to new networks, opportunities, and resources; supporting our academic work; being an outward and visible sign of the strength and value of the liberal arts at SMC; and upholding the values central to the Saint Mary's mission and identity. An anchor plate is an architectural feature that provides support, stability, and adornment to traditional structures. The classic mortar star anchor plate (pictured above) mirrors the five-pointed star that symbolizes our Lasallian Core Values.
