Georgia Gwinnett College has created its first-ever board of visitors. The GGC School of Business Board of Visitors is a consortium of prominent business and civic leaders selected from prestigious regional, national and international entities. Board members partner with constituencies outside academia to build private support for the scholarships, professorships and internships which bring outstanding students, faculty and programming to Georgia Gwinnett.
Board of visitors members serve as connectors, advocates and representatives of the GGC School of Business, articulating its mission and vision. Board membership is by invitation only and for a term of three years. Charter members of the GGC School of Business Board of Visitors are:
"The establishment of the School of Business Board of Visitors is in keeping with Georgia Gwinnett’s tradition of choosing innovators to lead our educational mission," said GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman. "With leaders from finance, entertainment and business, this group brings a powerful perspective to the School of Business and the GGC community."
Dr. Victoria Johnson, dean for the School of Business, said the board of visitors will expand the school’s growing reputation as a regional innovator in business education.
"We’re delighted to partner with this eminent group of local, national, and international leaders," Johnson said. "They add significant geographic, intellectual and professional breadth to our vision for the GGC School of Business."
