Honors College Advisory Board

The Honors College Advisory Board, established in 2005, is the external advisory board to the dean. The board is made up of distinguished Highlands community members who have had successful careers in medicine, law, business, and other professions. The board’s mission is to draw on the members’ expertise to advise the dean on long-range planning for the College and to seek ways to enhance educational opportunity in the Highlands area through a stronger connection with WCU.  Honors College Advisory Board By-Laws
