Advisory Board

The most important and influential volunteer group associated with the NC State College of Education is the Advisory Board. This group was established to advance the mission of the College through advocacy, fundraising and service. The Advisory Board is composed of NC State alumni and friends of the College who are educators at all levels, regional business leaders, retired professionals and philanthropists with a passion for education. Each fall and spring the group meets to review the College’s progress, discuss pressing issues and explore opportunities to expand engagement and support. We are grateful for their time, leadership and dedication.
