Leadership Council


The Leadership Council is comprised of successful alumni and friends who advise the Dean on strategic planning, curricula, student mentorship, internships and co-ops, job placement, faculty engagement with industry, and alumni affairs. The Council meets two times per year (Fall and Spring) and committee work occurs between meetings. Meetings typically include a dinner followed by a six hour meeting the next day. Members are expected to attend meetings, actively serve on committees, and provide financial support to the College by becoming a member of the Dean’s Circle (minimum contribution of $1,000 per year) and participate in University Capital Campaigns. See the highly successful business leaders who have already made the commitment to serve on the Leadership Council.

Prospective members are selected by the nominating committee of the Council, recommended by the Dean and Provost, and then appointed by the President. Members serve a three-year term. If you are interested in being considered for nomination to this council of distinguished business leaders and helping direct the future of the College of Business, please send your resume and a 500 word statement of interest to Dean Ray Braun at rwbraun@bgsu.edu.
