Advisory Boards

Whenever possible, departments or programs should create advisory boards to assist the faculty in developing new academic programs and meeting professional and societal needs. Advisory boards typically include prominent members who represent businesses as well as professional, educational, and government agencies. The functions of a board include the following:

  • 1. Providing first-hand information about the needs of the discipline- or program-related community, especially with regard to mid- and long-term curricular planning
  • 2. Providing exposure for the program to wider audiences
  • 3. Providing political expertise and insights in matters affecting the discipline
  • 4. Providing resource support for special events and projects, through endorsements and contributions
  • 5. Facilitating establishment and maintenance of internship opportunities
  • 6. Providing employment opportunities for graduates of the program
