The purpose of the Council is to provide feedback, advice, and direction on key strategic initiatives impacting the University.

Members are recommended for their expertise, experience, and engagement as key opinion leaders in their industry or community leadership roles. Interests and knowledge about issues in higher education is also considered. The maximum Council membership is 30 members.
