About Our Advisory Councils

Aligning with our strategic roadmap’s initiative to engage alumni and provide expertise on how we can evolve to meet the needs of employers, the College of Health and Human Sciences has developed advisory councils throughout the college that provide guidance and strategy on program development, undergraduate and graduate student career readiness, fundraising, and more. While the Dean’s Leadership Council provides strategic advice and sustainable ideas that will continue to advance the college as a whole, many HHS departments and schools have their own advisory councils that help them bolster strategy for their individual programs and resources.
