The Leadership Council is comprised of successful alumni and friends who advise the Dean on strategic planning, curricula, student mentorship, internships, faculty engagement, and alumni affairs.
Council members seek to promote the Honors College mission and serve for an initial three-year term with an option for reappointment to an additional term. The Council hosts two on-campus meetings each year in the fall and spring, and members are asked to make every effort to attend (meeting dates are set several months in advance). Typical priorities discussed during Leadership Council meetings include student networking, fundraising, and alumni engagement.
All members of Leadership Council are expected to support BGSU at the Leadership Circle level. Leadership Circle is a distinguished and dedicated group of donors who support BGSU by contributing $1,000 or more to the fund of their choice annually. This generous investment helps the University:
- Provide unique learning opportunities, professional development experiences, and scholarships for students.
- Recruit and retain world-class faculty and staff to educate our students.
- Elevate classrooms and laboratories with advanced technology and essential materials.
- Propel academic, extracurricular, and public service programs to national prominence.
