The College of Business Board of Advisors is a unique group of approximately 30 individuals who generously bring the adjacent six assets—and more—to our programs, plans and purpose.  They are business leaders, entrepreneurs, visionaries, philanthropists and community activists who have impacted their industries, communities and in some cases the world, in significant ways. Many are alumni. All are supporters of our mission and goals.

As a group they meet twice annually, but individually there are no time or frequency restraints on their access or contributions in addressing our challenges and opportunities.
