The Student Advisory Board  (SAB) is one of 4 student groups in the School of Communication. The Student Advisory Board, founded in 2017, is student-run and serves as the student voice to the administration, representing the School of Communication to various constituencies (prospective and current students, faculty, parents, and administrators), and implementing programs and initiatives designed to enhance the student experience within the school. The SAB works with their faculty advisor, Dr. Andrea Weber, and different student programs in the School of Communication like the SoC Trailblazer program, Chapman Radio, and Lambda Pi Eta.
