Advisory Board

The School of Education (SOE) Advisory Board is charged with enhancing excellence in the research, teaching, and service functions of the SOE and thereby strengthen its leadership in promoting UNCG as a leading student-centered university. Meeting twice annually on UNCG campus, the SOE Advisory Board provides input to the SOE Dean and members of the Dean’s Office Staff concerning pressing issues facing the SOE and UNCG.
