Board of Advisors

Comprised of business executives and community leaders, the Board of Advisors of the School of Business and Economics Board actively supports the School's community outreach activities; serves as an advisory body in the areas of strategic planning, career preparation, and program development; and helps identify internship opportunities for students.

Individually, Board members support the educational mission of the School by sharing their expertise with students and faculty, both in and out of the classroom, and by serving as evaluators for student projects and academic programs.

This partnership helps to cultivate key relationships and to create important networking opportunities within and beyond the Lynchburg metropolitan area. Membership is by invitation and for a limited term of service.
