The function of the Board of Advisors is to provide guidance and counsel in relevant matters to the department head, faculty and students. The Board of Advisors will also review the departmental programs and recommend areas of opportunity. By working with the chemistry department, the board will influence the University, state and nation by assisting the department head in creating excellence in teaching and research programs. By partnering with the department, the development of professionals for industry, government and academia will be enhanced.
Serving as a liaison between the department, industry, government and the community at large is the key to the future success of the department and board. Major fundraising efforts for the department, along with motivating students to develop employment opportunities through association with board members, will foster graduate success and future involvement in the department and Board of Advisors.
