National Advisory Board

Framework
  • Based on the recommendations from Commission Gustavus 150, starting in 2011 National Advisory Boards were established to facilitate an external perspective for College departments and programs.
  • Each Advisory Board is facilitated by a College administrator or faculty member. The Advisory Board chair serves as a volunteer and a member of the Crown Council, the Gustavus President’s advisory group.
  • Advisory Board members serve a three-year terms and may, unless otherwise determined, be re- appointed for unlimited terms.
  • Advisory Boards will meet as needed to provide adequate counsel and proper review of current and future initiatives of the program or department.
  • Typically a 3-4 hour meeting occurs 2-4 times per year in person in the Twin Cities
Statement of Purpose
  • Assist College programs and departments in visioning and long-range facilitation of initiatives
  • Recommend ways to establish and meet departmental goals as a result of the members’ advice, advocacy, expertise, goodwill, and financial support
  • Assist the program/department with implementing strategies for reaching department goals that may include student recruitment, student mentoring, alumni engagement, resource development, and internship and career development initiatives
  • Provide an avenue for alumni, parents, and friends from across the country to stay connected to the College and for enhanced engagement between the College and its constituents
  • Create an active and diverse group of constituents with a realistic understanding of program/department’s current needs that can serve as advocates for the department
