Student Advisory Board

Student Advisory Board Year in Review 2012-13

Purpose

The Student Advisory Board provides the student constituency a forum to voice their needs, concerns, and suggestions as they pertain to future planning and decision making within the Breech School of Business Administration. The board will consider timely and relevant areas of concern, which might include, long-range planning, student recruiting, retention, student placement, general student concerns and other items suggested by the Director of the Breech School of Business Administration and/or the faculty of the Breech School of Business Administration.

Membership Selection Guidelines

The board consists of students representing the diverse nature of the student body in the Breech School of Business Administration who will serve from September 1 through May 15. Care is taken to represent all majors, ethnic groups, gender, student classifications, student organizations (such as Delta Mu Delta and SIFE), and physically challenged students. To ensure continuity from year to year, underclassmen are invited to continue their membership with the Board until graduation, pending approval of the faculty of the Breech School of Business Administration.

The Breech faculty will nominate students for membership and the director, in consultation with current advisory board members, will appoint new members to the board each spring for the following academic year.

Representatives of the University

Given that each student nominated to the Board represents a vital part of the Breech School of Business Administration community, board members serve as representatives of the Breech School of Business Administration at special events throughout the year.

Graduate Student Advisory Board

Purpose

The Graduate Student Advisory Board (GSAB) serves as the primary liaison between the graduate student body and the administration of the Breech School of Business Administration. As such, the board members provide a conduit for graduate business students to express their needs, concerns, and suggestions as they pertain to future planning and decision making within the Breech School of Business Administration. In addition, it is intended that the board will provide real-time evaluation of the overall effectiveness of the administrative and educational processes of the graduate business programs and will assist the administration in the formulation of initiatives for growth and improvement of the MBA program. The GSAB meets once a month during the regular semesters with the director/assistant director of the MBA program at the Breech School of Business.

Membership Selection Guidelines

To the extent feasible, the seen members of the GSAB will represent the diverse nature of the graduate student body. Members will normally be appointed in the fall to serve for one academic year unless removed at the discretion of the director of the MBA program. If a member does not complete the year of service, the director of the MBA program will seek nominations from existing board members and will appoint a replacement to serve for the remainder of that year. The GSAB will be reformed each fall shortly after commencement of graduate classes. New members of the GSAB will be nominated each year by the graduate administration and faculty of the Breech School of Business. The general criteria for appointment to the GSAB are high aptitude and academic achievement as reflected in GMAT test scores and GPA data, professional experience and a willingness to serve in this advisory capacity.
