Welcome advisory boards

| Gretchen Hutterli

Advisory boards have played an important role in the College of Business since the college established the Business Advisory Council, its first advisory board, in 1988. 

Board members support the college, and its departments and programs by providing knowledge about industry trends, offering advice and feedback on academic programs and policies, and funding scholarships, professorships, student activities, learning spaces, and other initiatives. We are grateful for the on-going support of these volunteers.

We are pleased to welcome the following groups to campus on Friday, September 30:
