DSP Leadership

The Deaton Scholars Program takes pride in empowering students through leadership roles, the program directorship role, and as members of our Scholar Advisory Board. Each year we adapt our model to best fit the needs and interests of our students. Each semester the University of Missouri program is organized by a Program Director(s), the Scholar Advisory Board, Drs. Deaton, and logistical support provided by CAFNR International Programs. Likewise, a team of Faculty Advisory Board members and the Faculty and Staff Resource Network provide support to the scholars in their learning and project activities.

DSP Leadership – Fall 2021 

The DSP Cohort Facilitator and Scholar Advisory Board facilitate the planning and implementation of all Deaton Scholars Program events and activities. Many of our SAB members also serve as coaches to DSP teams at the University of Missouri.
