Advisory Board Members

The primary purpose of Center of Excellence’s Advisory Board is to promote collaboration between specific educational programs and business, and industry, and labor in preparing individuals to enter and succeed in their chosen career. Advisory Boards historically have been an effective means
of helping the educational delivery system respond to the needs of a constantly changing labor market.

The strength of an Advisory Board is reflected in the diversity of its membership. Our Center is proud of our Advisory Board whose members represent a diverse group from different genders, races, cultures, and backgrounds.
