AIS Success Strategies Webinar 
Achieving Academic-Industry Collaboration with Departmental Advisory Boards 

Thursday, June 18, 2015 11 a.m. EST



Advisory boards are an effective tool for sustaining industry-academic collaboration. Linkages through boards are deep and can enable the conversations needed to exchange knowledge and produce human capital. Yet, advisory boards are complex entities that require significant management. In this webinar, we will debate the advisory board value proposition and compare the mission, governance, recruitment, and role of board members across four different institutions in the U.S. This webinar will provide archetypes and best practices for implementing advisory boards at your institution. We hope to encourage colleagues to create and sustain valuable industry-academic collaboration. 


This webinar is based on a paper in MISQE on advisory boards.
