Pacific Lutheran University School of Business Executive Advisory Board

The Executive Advisory Board is a non-fiduciary board established to provide guidance, support and assistance to the School of Business in fulfilling the School’s mission.  Members are invited to join the Board because they have resources, skills and qualities that can advance both the School of Business and the Board’s purposes, which are to:

  • Provide guidance on program direction, strategic growth and community connections by actively participating in board meetings held three times per year.
  • Provide financial support both personally and through corporate connections.
  • Participate in networking activities which promote the University’s mission and specifically, that of the School of Business.
  • Support the School’s mission by participating on committees based on expertise and interest.  These committees meet informally to develop strategy and generate ideas to help the School achieve its objectives.
