President’s Advisory Councils
The purpose of the advisory councils is to create a structure in which people from every corner of campus can work together to address issues of critical importance to MSU Denver. They are intended to provide an inclusive forum to bring forward the best ideas for making our University more effective and successful in achieving its goals.
All University community members are encouraged to participate in these councils. Contact one of the leads below for more information.
