HPM Program Advisory Council

The HPM faculty unanimously endorsed the creation of a program advisory council (PAC) in 2009 to provide support and guidance for efforts to expand opportunities for students and alumni. The PAC meets annually to expand networking opportunities for current students and alumni. Members also assist the program in recruiting guest speakers for alumni career forums, the Health Policy Forum, and the Health Care Leadership Forum. The PAC also explores opportunities for fund-raising and development to support program initiatives. Members of the PAC are appointed by the President, with the assistance of staff from Institutional Advancement, based upon recommendations by HPM faculty. The PAC is co-chaired by the HPM program director and a Chair selected by the President of the College.
