Board of Governors

The College of Merchandising, Hospitality Management & Tourism is proud to boast two dynamic boards, which guide the merchandising and hospitality management programs in their development and fund raising activities. Board members are recognized leaders in their respective fields and work diligently as advocates for the school and university. Specifically, the boards bring their expertise to faculty and students through participation in curriculum development, keynote lectures, recruitment events, and field studies. An especially critical function of the board is to assist the School in developing and cultivating external support.
