SPHHS Advisory Board

In 2019, the School of Public Health and Health Sciences merged the Community and Dean’s Advisory Boards to better partner with and engage its constituents. Board members include community stakeholders, alumni, employers, and other relevant community partners. They serve in order to provide an opportunity for dialogue, feedback, and new ideas on such topics as advancement and fundraising, curriculum and workforce development, student opportunities, and much more.
