Tampa Bay Advisory Board Named

Published: September 05, 2001

UT’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) has named a Board of Community Advisors from among prominent Tampa Bay area business and professional leaders.


The list is headed by Lea Davis, who will serve as the Board’s first chair. CLAS Dean G. Jeffrey Klepfer, Ph.D., will be a member. The group already has had its inaugural meeting.


"The primary purpose is to assist the College in interfacing with the public," Klepfer said. "We will meet again in late September or early October, and then will be establishing two committees: Public Affairs and Program Development. Public Affairs will provide input regarding the promotion of the college's community presence, and Program Development will help us assess the opportunities and threats associated with starting new undergraduate and graduate academic programs."


Other members of the new board include Bill Carlson of Tucker/Hall Inc.; William C. Dudley III, MD; Taylor Eason of Creative Loafing; George W. Gage III of Northern Trust Bank; Earl Haugabook of TECO Energy; William Kalish of Kalish and Ward; Leon Mandell, Ph.D.; Candy Olson of the Hillsborough County School Board; Jan Roberts of the Institute for Ethics and Meaning; Curtis R. Rogers of Rogers and Associates; Linda S. Taggart; and James E. Tokley Sr. of Tokley and Associates.
