Volunteer Leadership

McIntire’s boards serve as a crucial link between the School and the business, public, and alumni communities it serves. Essential in helping School leadership identify and achieve strategic goals, volunteer board members also help faculty bring industry experts and leading practitioners into the classroom and put students in direct contact with business executives and recruiters.
