Faculty Advisory Board

Each year, CRLT-Engin invites members of the CoE faculty to serve on its advisory board. Their role is to advise the Center’s director on policies and activities that support the mission of CRLT-Engin, while also liaising between the Center and CoE community. Topics of discussion include CRLT-Engin priorities & key directions, resource creation, and reviews for the Towner Prize for Outstanding GSIs. The advisory board meets approximately twice during an academic year.
