Board of Advisors

The Williams School Board of Advisors consists of alumni and parents of Washington and Lee, who offer advice to the Dean and faculty on all areas of the school's curriculum and programs. The board consists of industry leaders from across the country and the world. Members reflect the school's four departments: accounting, business, economics, and politics. Advisors who step down from the board are honored with emeritus status.
