Board of Advisors

The board of advisors serves as a critical source of counsel to the dean in setting the course for the school’s future. 

Membership is international in scope and is comprised of university trustees, alumni of the school, public and private sector leaders, and community members who share a commitment to preparing leaders in the field of international affairs. Members serve as ambassadors for the school, promoting its programs to external constituencies and working with school leadership to ensure its strength and advancement.
