BEO Department Undergraduate Student Leaders (DUGs) 2021-22

BEO is supported by a group of Department Undergraduates or DUGS who meet regularly and plan programs in conjunction with BEO faculty and staff to foster a sense of community within BEO. DUGs help students make and strengthen connections with other concentrators, professors, and concentrator alums.
