Established in the summer of 1998, the MIS Board of Advisors provides an effective mechanism for communication and collaboration between the MIS department and its business partners. This has facilitated a level of counsel and support which has increased the value of the partnership and has provided the context to explore synergies, capabilities and joint opportunities.
By providing counsel and support, our Board Members and the MIS department have become true partners in the quest to become the leaders in defining and developing IT learning, research and broad-based community outreach and service.
The mission of the Board is to move the MIS program forward along its three basic missions: educate students, conduct research, and engage in outreach activities.
