Board Leadership

The mission of the SCJ Dean’s Advisory Board (DAB) is to keep our school on top of the current needs and future trends of the professions and industries that we serve. DAB members are also vital to our school’s efforts in the acquisition of resources necessary to achieve our development goals through contacts with prospective individual, foundation, and corporate donors. DAB members serve as ambassadors for the school in South Florida, regionally, and internationally. Members also enjoy the satisfaction of being affiliated with one of the best journalism and mass communication schools in the country.
