These members are actively engaged in the broad areas of bioproducts and biosystems.  They support the educational and research mission of the department through the following subcommittees:

  • Academic Advisory - Support the faculty with undergraduate curricula and accreditation of the departmental programs.
  • Placement, Scholarship and Council Membership - Leverage industry partners to provide students with financial support, networking and employment opportunities, which will in turn grow the Council.
  • Student Recruitment and Retention - Assist with bringing new students to our programs and then providing services and activities to retain them throughout their college career.
