Advisory Council Board

The primary purpose of the Advisory Council is to assist the School in shaping, refining, and achieving its vision, mission, and goals. The Advisory Council will additionally foster closer ties between the School and its stakeholders. To ensure this, the Advisory Council includes, but is not limited to, alumni and leaders of industries, businesses and organizations that employ the School's graduates and collaborate with the School's research, education and outreach programs.

As part of a public university, the School does receive state-funded support. However, the School requires financial and in-kind support beyond these levels if it is to compete internationally with other architecture schools for students, faculty and professional recognition. The Advisory Council helps the School garner this support.

The Advisory Council facilitates the School's efforts in a number of specific ways:

A. Engaging the Community

The Advisory Council acts as a catalyst in bringing together individuals, organizations, institutions and businesses seeking greater understanding, collaboration, and involvement in higher education, who are capable of expanding opportunities in instruction, research, and outreach programs for the School.

B. Advocacy

The Advisory Council will advocate on behalf of the priorities of the School to university administration, Alumni, Industry, the Hawai‘i Legislature and other internal & external constituencies with which the School wishes to form relations.

C. Financial Support

Fundraising and advocacy are separate functions. The Advisory Council's role in fundraising should be one of endorsement, providing contacts, helping secure financial resources through personal support as well as identifying, cultivating, and soliciting prospective donors. There is an annual commitment of $2000 per member which includes support for special School projects selected by the Council.

Membership in the Advisory Council is open to (invited) individuals who demonstrate a commitment to the School by assisting the School in building a strong reputation, assisting in reaching its goals and priorities, and demonstrating a commitment to the School through endorsement, annual giving, endowment support and other opportunities for the benefit of the School. The Advisory council shall consist of not more than sixty (60) active members and not less than fifteen (15) persons. Advisory Council members shall be invited by the Dean and confirmed by the council at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
