Bauer College Board

Our extensive board is composed of business leaders from a wide range of industries who, collectively, bring their decades of experience to the table as they advise the dean of the Bauer College on critical issues.

The Bauer College Board (BCB) works with the dean of the Bauer College to create a strong and enduring relationship between the college and the business community. The BCB provides input on a number of critical issues, including strategy, thought leadership, student engagement and curricular relevance. In addition, the BCB assists with garnering the monetary support needed to maintain and enhance the reputation of the C. T. Bauer College of Business.
