Leadership Council

The Leadership Council serves as the key volunteer group for the College of Education and Human Development at Bowling Green State University. Members assist the dean in achieving the College’s state goals and mission, offer leadership and insight, help identify and secure resources for major initiatives and priorities and serve as ambassadors for the College and the University.
Members are required to attend two meetings per academic calendar, serve as a resource to the Dean, administrators and faculty, provide insight on the College’s image, direction and strategic plan, aid in the recruitment of the highest caliber faculty and students and encourage involvement in advancement opportunities for the College.
Members are appointed by official invitation through the Office of the President. Each member is appointed to a three-year term and is required to attend two meetings, one in the fall and the second in the spring. Potential members are identified by College personnel and/or University Advancement. 
If you would like to be considered for membership for the College of Education and Human Development Leadership Council, please contact Sara Zulch-Smith at szulchs@bgsu.edu.
