Corporate Advisory Committee
The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering & Information Technology’s mission is to prepare our graduates for successful careers in the computing, information technology and engineering professions. The College therefore established and works closely with a Corporate Advisory Committee, comprised of executives from industry and professional institutions (such as the military) throughout Georgia and the Southeast. The mission of the Corporate Advisory Committee is four-fold.
- Strategic: Inform the Dean from a professional perspective about trends and events affecting the profession and the College.
- Coalition Building: Help the Dean develop relationships with regional corporations, educational and governmental institutions; act as ambassadors and advocates for Georgia Southern within professional networks.
- Educational: Provide expertise and knowledge of what is required from entry-level employees in the engineering, computer science and information technology fields.
- Fundraising: Endowments, scholarships, research funds and in-kind donations are crucial to achieving a shared goal of providing a top-notch education for our graduates (and future employees).
