Lerner Student Advisory Board

Students at the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics have a diverse range of nearly 30 student-led groups on campus, offering students opportunities to connect, engage and grow in their personal and professional interests.

Allie Rebuck, Class of 2024 management information systems and business analytics double major, is the chairperson of the Lerner Student Advisory Board. Rebuck shared why she joined LSAB, what makes this group stand out and how to make an impact.

Lerner: When and why did you choose to join this student group?

Lerner: When and where does your student group meet and approximately how many members do you have?

Rebuck: We meet once per week as a board and once per month with Dean Yao and/or Deputy Dean Sheryl Kline. The board ranges from 10-15 members.

Lerner: What is the mission/goal of your student group?

Rebuck: The Lerner Student Advisory Board seeks to be a liaison between undergraduate students and the Dean’s Office of Lerner, providing a platform for two-way feedback which fosters an environment of academic enrichment, extracurricular involvement, and improved satisfaction among Lerner students.

Lerner: What is your best memory or proudest moment from this student group?

Rebuck: My proudest moment has been conducting and presenting the 2023 LSAB student survey results to the Dean, Alumni Advisory Board, and Lerner Career Services department to showcase the value of the board’s event programming and provide recommendations for future improvement.

Lerner: What is unique about your student group?

Rebuck: We have the opportunity to work closely with Dean Yao, Deputy Dean Kline, and Lerner administration to have a tangible impact on the student population of Lerner.

Lerner: What are your goals for the future of your student group?

Rebuck: Our future goals are to expand experiential learning opportunities for students of all majors and increase peer-to-peer connection within the Lerner College.

Lerner: How has your student group helped you grow, personally or professionally?

Rebuck: Leading this student group has allowed me to collaborate with bright, passionate students and overcome barriers to turn ideas into events that improve Lerner students’ experiences. LSAB has helped me evolve as a leader and is an extremely rewarding organization to be involved in.
