National Council

Established in 2008, the Arts, Sciences and Engineering National Council is the leading volunteer advisory group for the School of Arts and Sciences and the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and The College. The Council’s membership consists of distinguished national and international leaders who provide guidance and expertise on key initiatives for the schools. The Council meets with our deans semi-annually, and most recently, played an integral role in drafting our Campaign themes and goals.
