CEHD Student Success Advisory Board

The CEHD Student Success Advisory Board was established in the Fall 2023 semester to provide faculty and staff with insight into the needs of the CEHD student body. Advisory Board members demonstrate strong leadership skills to support them in fulfilling the diverse duties of the role, such as serving as representatives of their programs, assisting with CEHD signature events and functions, creating social media content, and planning events for the college.
