Advisory board

The High School Counselor Advisory Board is comprised of school counselor and community based organization advisors who advise the Office of Undergraduate Admissions on ways the university can best facilitate a student’s transition from high school to college. The advisory board assists the office in its efforts to be responsive to the mindsets, interest, and goals of high school students and keeps the office informed of trends in the college search, selection, and application process of students. Additionally, the advisory board shares needs of the school counseling community and community based organizations. Members serve a three year term and are asked to attend one annual meeting on campus each year.

If you have not served on the advisory board and are interested, please reach out to Thomas Giles at
