SSW Board of Advisors

Members of the SSW Board of Advisors include alumni, donors, community leaders, and other advocates for the School and its programs. They serve as influencers with public and private interests, and they help the School identify and achieve its goals.

Each member is initially appointed to a two-year term and may be reappointed. Board meetings are held twice annually. Board members also attend other School events as their schedules permit.

Dean Gary Bowen and Alumni Council President Kristen Register Laken serve as ex officio members. Mary Beth Hernandez, Associate Dean for Advancement, serves as liaison to the SSW Board of Advisors.
