Advisory boards meet to keep faculty and staff advised of industry changes, ensuring that the curriculum is aligned with current needs. Advisory boards may also help with grant applications and securing additional funding to help fill the gap between state funds and the actual cost of programs. To learn more about joining an advisory board, contact XXXX.
