Board of Advisors

This board was established in 1967 by the Board of Trustees to assist the university in the achievement of long-range goals. By consulting with the president of the university and the trustees, advisors add variety, strength and experience to the administrative structure of the university. The board is comprised of interested persons—both alumni and friends of the university—of various Christian faiths and from several states. The board has been helpful in fund-raising, student recruitment, long-range planning, and general public relations. Its recommendations are channeled  through the Board of Trustees, which remains the official policy-making body of the university. Members of the Board of Advisors serve 4-year terms.
