The mission of the Nicholson School of Communication and Media Advisory Board is to foster a partnership between the school and its constituents and affiliations, both within the school and extending to the larger community. The overlying goal of the board is to assist the administration and faculty in maintaining and enhancing the quality and excellence of the school in its educational and research missions.

The school’s advisory board is comprised of a geographically and professionally diverse cross-section of alumni, friends, and professionals selected for their ability to provide advice to the director on how to strengthen teaching, scholarship and service at the Nicholson School of Communication and Media. Membership is by invitation of the director of the school and is non-compensated.
