Advisory Board

David Crawford School of Engineering

The David Crawford School of Engineering’s Advisory Board, traditionally called its Board of Fellows, is a group of alumni and friends who work to support and enrich engineering at Norwich. This visiting committee meets at least twice a year; during Homecoming and another gathering in the spring.

In addition to performing a formal review of the academic program and the dean’s Three Year Plan, committee members bring professional knowledge of the needs of industry, and insight into the ways Norwich can best provide those skill sets. The School of Engineering has always maintained a strong advisory board.

A nomination process ensures that the committee has the requisite skills. Nominations can be forwarded to the school’s director, the committee chairman, or the Executive Committee.
