College Advisory Councils

Advisory councils provide advice, counsel and assistance to the leadership of each college. The council includes a cross-section of faculty and community leaders from the Greater Tampa Bay region.

Advisory council meetings focus attention on the college’s progress and notable achievements, new initiatives and how they relate to the University’s progress, challenges facing the academic community and other areas of mutual concern. Members take an active role in council deliberations, ultimately recommending actions that contribute to the quality of our programs and strengthen the college’s overall reputation. Members can also contribute by:

  • Educating others about the mission, objectives and accomplishments of the college
  • Financially supporting the college
  • Volunteering for specific committees
  • Serving as guest speakers or lecturers
  • Offering individual consultation on specific problems within their areas of expertise
  • Hiring our graduates
  • Identifying new council members
