Science Advisory Board
The W&L Science Advisory Board (SAB) is comprised of alumni and parents who either have a science degree or are currently working in a science or math related industry. Members are nominated by science faculty and other members of the W&L community, and are selected through the Board's membership process. Members serve a four-year term.

The purpose of the SAB is threefold:
- Share advice, resources, and support to the departments within Science and Mathematics. Members will provide unique perspective on industry needs and trends, careers/internships and mentoring, opportunities for students, and other forms of material support, as appropriate.
- Provide perspective and advocacy to the Dean of the College in support of Science and Mathematics.
- Encourage and engage alumni and parental support of the sciences. Board members are "ambassadors" of the sciences to all University networks. They serve as a conduit between alumni, parents, and the Dean of the College and the science departments in order to create valuable connections, share information, and provide resources.
The Board meets four times a year, including one on-campus meeting each fall.
