School of Family and Consumer Sciences

Key to the success of any educational program is its interaction with the professional community. The Interior Design Program has an active Advisory Board with representation from the current student membership, the profession, industry, and alumni.

The Advisory Board provides topical advice and real-world work requirements which often results in curriculum improvements; they offer students advice on resume and portfolio preparation; and the Board holds mock interviews thus strengthening students' skills and confidence.

The Advisory Board comprises:
