COE Professional Advisory Board

COE Junior Advisory Board

In September 2011, the Dean of the College of Education, Dr. Patriarca, created a Junior Advisory Board (JAB). The purpose of this board is to share the experiences of students in the college with the Dean and administrators, to advise the Dean on new ideas, to help establish a culture of giving amongst students, and to provide lasting leadership opportunities for board members. The Board will expand the perspectives of the College and ensure that students are considered when making decisions.
