Strategic Advisory Board

Chris Stanley, VP of Clinical and Digital Solutions at Labcorp, speaking during a Labcorp 'Leadership in Technology' Speakers Series event.

A cornerstone of the computer science department's strategic planning efforts is our Strategic Advisory Board (SAB).


This dynamic group of industry executives and academic leaders provide input and guidance that is critical to helping shape our strategic direction.

The SAB meets annually on campus and continues to function as a virtual working team throughout the year through member involvement on subcommittees and executive panels.

The SAB chairperson for the 2023-24 academic year is Lance Berberian.
