Advisory Boards

The Albers Dean’s Executive Advisory Board is made up of eminent business leaders from the Puget Sound region. They work with Dean Joe Phillips and the Albers faculty to provide invaluable input and communicate industry needs. Members of the advisory board also serve Albers by advising on the development of new curriculum, lecturing, mentoring students, and collaborating on class projects.

In 2022, the board created a new board membership category, the Recent Alumni member.
