Dean's Advisory Board

What is The Dean's Advisory Board?

According to Frank Goza, Interim Dean of the College of Letters and Sciences, the Advisory Board will help the College determine if our planning is realistic, our vision is attainable within a given time period, and if we are asking enough of ourselves.

The critical evaluation and valuable advice provided by members is an important dialogue with alumni and friends. The Dean's Advisory Board was established to carry out, on an ongoing basis, the functions of external review and recommendations on the programs and potential of the College of Letters and Sciences, while serving the added function of interpreting the College's programs externally. Please contact Tamara Hauck if you would like more information about the Dean's Advisory Board.


Dean's Advisory Board members are friends and alumni of the University. They are civic leaders, individuals with expertise and knowledge that can be extremely beneficial to students and faculty in L & S, and their relationship to the college is one of dedication and affection. Ideally, the size of the board will be between 30-40 persons. The membership of the board will include civic and community leaders.

Board members represent a variety of careers, backgrounds, and expertise. An effort will be made to include diversity within the membership, male-female balance, and desirable ratio of local to non-local members.
