CSM Advisory Council

csm_advisory_council

The Advisory Council is a volunteer board to the leadership of the College of Science and Mathematics, offering guidance to help the college best serve the region and the state; providing contacts with business, government and the community to advance the mission of CSM; and acting as an advocate on behalf of CSM and CSUSM. The Council also provides leadership in fundraising and development in support of CSM’s mission and initiatives. Members of the Council include industry professionals representing life sciences, chemistry, aerospace, electronics and information systems, as well as CSUSM faculty, alumni and parents.

The Council meets four times annually to discuss workforce trends, opportunities and initiatives. By contributing their collective knowledge, vision, experience and resources, the Council serves as ambassadors on behalf of the College, while helping CSM to establish priorities and chart its successful course for the future.
