1998-1999 Advisory Board

            In keeping with the UC Office of the President policy for Organized Research Units (ORUs), the Director of the Center for Black Studies shall be aided by a standing Advisory Committee, chaired by a faculty member other than the Director. The Committee participates actively in setting the Center’s goals and in critically evaluating its effectiveness on a continuing basis.

            The 1998-99 Advisory Board Committee is composed of UCSB faculty members and one local community member. Last year we attempted to have more community members on the Board, but were not successful due to scheduling conflicts. The Center has been extremely fortunate in having so many very committed and supportive individuals on its Advisory Board.
