Leadership of the college benefits from the perspective and voice of the college’s various stakeholders. To ensure the voices of faculty, students, alumni, and donors are represented in the college’s decision-making, the college has established formal advisory groups that meet on a regular basis with the dean and officers of the college. Members of these advisory groups are invited to raise concerns, offer advice and ideas, review and critique proposals and plans, and join the administrative team in advancing the college’s strategic goals.
Membership in the advisory groups is designed to be broadly representative of the college and its divisions, to give voice to the college’s various constituents, and to ensure a diversity of perspectives are considered in the leadership and administration of the college.
These advisory groups include the Dean’s Advisory Board, an external national advisory group comprised of business and professional leaders who are alumni and donors; the Faculty Advisory Council, which is comprised of faculty representing the departments and schools of the college; and the Dean’s Student Advisory Council, which includes student representatives of each department and school of the college.
