College of Business Board of Advisors


Mission and Purpose:

The Board of Advisors provides advice and counsel to the Dean, serve as ambassadors and advocates for the College, and help secure the private resources needed for the College to achieve its mission. The board serves as key partners to help build a leading global, professional College of Business. Our graduates will be known for their effective and principled business leadership as well as their technical and managerial skills with their guidance and support. Our research will influence business leaders, academics and policymakers. They help us ensure that we will be a workplace of choice for faculty, staff, and students, a valued member of the U of L community and a contributor to the welfare of the City of Louisville, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the world beyond its borders.

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.
