Advisory Board

The Advisory Board provides input on academics, research, administration, outreach, advocacy, and development. The Board reviews the graduate and undergraduate curriculum and degree programs, program educational objectives, and program outcomes, and offers suggestions for change to keep them current. The Board evaluates the quality and scope of our research, its relationship to our programs, its relevancy and helps guide future directions. The Board recommends ways to build new relationships with industry and to strengthen those we have.
