Dean’s Advisory Council

Made up of a distinguished panel of alumni, industry leaders and friends of the school, the Dean’s Advisory Council (DAC) provides the dean with recommendations on the enhancement of research and educational enterprise, advocacy, industrial partnerships, outreach, resource development and counsel. The DAC meets biannually, in the spring and in the fall, to review the school’s progress and provide a forum for feedback.
