College of Arts and Letters Dean’s Advisory Board Meets April 20 and 21

May 1, 2023

The College of Arts and Letters at Idaho State University is committed to providing its students with a comprehensive and well-rounded education. To achieve this, the college has established the Dean's Advisory Board, a group of alumni and friends who volunteer their time to support and advise the college's leadership team.

The Dean's Advisory Board is made up of individuals who are passionate about the arts, humanities, and social sciences and believe in the importance of a liberal arts education. The board members bring a diverse range of skills, expertise, and perspectives to the table, and they work collaboratively with the Dean and her colleagues to develop strategies to enhance the quality of education offered by the college.

The board members are actively involved in fundraising, outreach, and advocacy efforts aimed at promoting the college's programs and attracting new students. They also provide guidance on issues such as curriculum development, student recruitment, and faculty hiring.

On April 20 and 21, the Dean's Advisory Board held its meetings in the new ICCU Bengal Alumni Center, and were privileged to be the first group to use the Rice Family Foundation Board Room. During these meetings, board members had the opportunity to hear about inspiring initiatives taking place across the college. For instance, they learned about students who had won awards at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival and others who were set to represent the college at the National Advertising Competition. 

At the conclusion of the meetings, the Dean's Advisory Board Wall was unveiled. The wall, which honors all current and past members of the board, is a testament to the dedication and service of these alumni. Through their tireless efforts, they help elevate the College of Arts and Letters, increasing opportunity for our current and prospective students.

"On April 21 we unveiled something very special -- this wall honors all current and past members of my Dean's Advisory Board. Much of our success as a college is due to this dedicated group of alumni and friends, and I am so grateful. Thank you to this incredible group for your leadership, tireless advocacy, and support of Arts and Letters and ISU through the years," said Dean Kandi Turley Ames.
