Former chair of the Strategic Advisory Board, Donald Thompson, Jr. speaking during a Fidelity Investments Speaker 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 2019-20 academic year is Tracy Doaks and the vice-chair is Kim Calhoun.
