Board of Advisors

The Board of Advisors is a volunteer board established by the Nichols College Board of Trustees in 2007.  The Board of Advisors is made up of accomplished alumni and friends of Nichols College.  The Board meets semi-annually, sometimes in conjunction with special events designed to immerse participants in intellectual and social activities with faculty, students, trustees and friends.  The meetings are designed to utilize the expertise and talents of the members to better the strategic goals of the College.
