The purpose of the Corporate/Non-Profit Advisory Board is to help guide and shape the work and focus of the Center for Ethical and Socially Responsible Leadership. This board will do this by sharing their extensive experience, their exposure to issues around ethics and social responsibility within their industry and outside, and their ideas on social responsibility and leadership. They will be individuals who have an affinity for the Broad College of Business and/or Michigan State University and who want to help positively influence the next generation of Business leaders.
We want to build a team with comprehensive experiences that span the six departments within the Broad College of Business (Accounting Information Systems, Finance, Hospitality Business Management, Marketing and Supply Chain). We want to have a team that represents all students within the Broad College of Business.
Nomination for being on the advisory board of the center can be done by current advisory board members, Center Leadership, and/or College Leadership. The Center Leadership will seek out potential individuals across the college spectrum as the board is composed. All nominated members in the center’s steady state will be vetted by the Center Board. The goal of the process will be to create an inclusive mix of Board members from for-profit, not-for-profit, worlds across gender, race and ethnicity, faculty/students and other members. Center Leadership in concert with College Leadership and other advisory board members will select Board Members from the nominees.
The following questions will be considered when reviewing Board Member nominations:
