Board of Advisors

Meet the Board of Advisors

The Board of Advisors provides an added dimension to the College of Business in its ongoing efforts to maintain and develop forward looking programs of teaching, research, and service. Independent of routine operations and administrative detail, the Board is free to exercise the wisdom, talents, skills, and experience of its members in anticipating and examining new societal and business directions, community developments and needs. Because the Board has no supervisory or oversight responsibilities, its members maintain an objective and broad point of view in the pursuit of excellence in the undergraduate and masters programs of the College.
