The role of the Maxwell School Advisory Board is to provide advice and counsel to the dean and other school leaders. The board plays a key role in helping to shape the School's future. Board members are accomplished, distinguished members of the world
of business, government, law, education, and beyond. Many of them are also graduates of the Maxwell School. They share a keen appreciation for the mission of the School, and, with their worldly perspective, they help assure that Maxwell grows and
adapts in ways that are tactically sound and well-geared to the public sectors that Maxwell ultimately serves. The board meets twice each year, and gathers at other times as needed in smaller groups to address specific issues.
Note: Members marked with an asterisk serve also as members of the Syracuse University Board of Trustees.
