Advisory Board

The Community College Relations Advisory Board is made up of representatives from EMU and our partner community colleges.

The purpose of the advisory board is to provide insight and advice to the provost, faculty and staff of EMU on ways to improve services and processes that affect transfer students; to foster communication and collaboration with our community college partners; and to provide a forum for sharing information and ideas about current issues in higher education.
