Advisory Board

The Advisory Board serves as the certificate steering committee and meets at least once per semester to support and advise the Director of the program.

The Advisory Board is comprised of the Director and representatives from each participating college, the Center for Integrative Conservation Research, Office of Sustainability, Graduate School, and additional faculty as needed to provide balanced representation from each area of sustainability (economic, social, and ecological). Board members will serve two-year renewable terms.

One chief task of the Board is to review courses for inclusion in the certificate. The Director will compile and forward a list of nominated courses to the Board for approval at least once a semester. The Board will periodically review courses previously submitted to make sure their inclusion in the certificate remains appropriate.

Other responsibilities of the Board include identifying the academic home for the certificate with input from participating deans on a 3-year rotation or renewal basis, selecting the program Director, advising the Director regarding student capstone projects and internships as needed, overseeing disbursement and use of certificate program funds, and generally serving as ambassadors of the certificate, encouraging students, recruiting faculty participation, and periodically attending or presenting at the certificate seminar.
