Industrial Advisory Board

The Construction Management Industrial Advisory Board provides valuable guidance and information related to current practices and emerging trends in the industries where our graduates work.

Advisory board members come from a wide variety of industries and bring with them a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences. Their wealth of knowledge, is used to keep our curriculum current and help ensure that we are preparing our students for the challenges of the global workplace.

The board generally meets each semester. They meet with students to get feedback on their experiences and provide general advice and mentoring.

We are very appreciative of the efforts of our board members and the benefits they provide to our students and the Construction Management Program.
