Members of National Council are ambassadors for the college.  They exist to advocate for the school and advance its students while valuing diversity, practicing inclusion, and always putting students first. National Council members connect with prospective students, aid in placing recent graduates, share their expertise as a speaker and/or mentor, and promote the college by hosting events and making introductions to others who demonstrate an interest in supporting the college.  Members are added by invitation of the Dean and attend two meetings annually that are experiential and impactful by nature.
