Community Advisory Board

In 2017, the School of Public Health and Health Sciences formed the Community Advisory Board to partner with and engage its constituents. Board members include community stakeholders, alumni, employers, and other relevant community partners. They provide an opportunity for dialogue, feedback, and generating new ideas on topics such as curriculum and workforce, student opportunities, and much more.
