Advisory Council

in this section

The Advisory Council of the Robert Frederick Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering was created in 1981 to assist in the development and long-range planning for the rapidly growing school. To continue the tradition of excellence in professional programs while expanding graduate research programs, Julian C. Smith, then director of the school, asked representatives from industry and academia to join in giving the school "guidance from knowledgeable people who have an interest in the quality of our future-and who can help us in charting our directions." Advisory Council members serve a three-year term and convene once a year, meeting with faculty and students of the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and administrators of the College of Engineering.
