National Board of Advisors

The Eller College National Board of Advisors is a network of alumni, supporters, and friends of the College who play a vital role in resource development, communications, and policy.

Members and their organizations provide input and expertise, donate money and equipment, offer internships and jobs, host site visits and class projects, and underwrite scholarships and faculty research.

Board members visit the College regularly to attend Board meetings and participate in student-focused events.
