Student Organizations

Student Organizations are an important extension of the classroom experience at DBU. We have a vast amount of student organizations from which to choose, so there's something for everyone. And if there's not, you can create one! Becoming a member of a student organization helps you meet new people, and opens pathways for students to develop their leadership and become servant leaders in their community.

DBU has many active student organizations focused upon various academic, social, service, and spiritual emphases.

The DBU student organizations website is designed to serve as a resource for members and students involved in student organizations. You'll be able to search and see what organizations meet your leadership potential and find answers to questions about policies and procedures necessary to maintain the standards established for our student organizations. Please take the time to review our website for the current student organization offerings and how you can play a role on our campus!

If you have any questions or would like to speak with Wayne Briggs, our Director of Student Life, about campus organizations please contact the Student Life office located in Lower Level of the William B. Dean Learning Center at (214) 333-5611 or

We look forward to building you into the leader God has created you to be, and hope you become a member of one of our student organizations!
