The Dean’s Advisory Council is a trusted circle of advisors who is a sounding board for the Dean of Emory College on strategic issues. The Council represents the highest level of volunteer leadership for Emory College outside of the Emory Board of Trustees. We envision the intersections with the Board of Trustees to be twofold: welcoming concurrent service when applicable and preparing potential Trustees for future service.

Dean’s Advisory Council works closely with the Dean of Emory College and Emory College Development and Alumni Relations. Members provide counsel to the Dean and his leadership team, advance the College’s interests and its academic mission, and support Emory’s external relations, alumni engagement and fundraising efforts.

Serving on the board is a rewarding experience and an important commitment. Members enthusiastically support its activities and participate in the life of Emory College as advisors, ambassadors, and advocates. Through attendance and participation at meetings, selected activities throughout the year, and philanthropic support, members demonstrate their volunteer leadership on behalf of Emory College.
