UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The Chancellor's Advisory Council is a premier volunteer opportunity at UW-River Falls. The group is comprised of committed, enthusiastic community leaders representing key external stakeholder constituencies. Their counsel, ambassadorship and insights constitute invaluable support to the Chancellor. The purpose of the group is specifically aimed at supporting the university's mission through the development of partnerships that drive the success of UW-River Falls and the region we serve.
Members of the council are selected on the basis of their leadership, expertise and experience in public, private, business and academic domains. Council members serve in an advisory role and are not part of the formal governance of the university.
