External Advisory Board

About HDO | Director’s Welcome | Campus Connections | Austin


HDO actively seeks contributions and advice from our External Advisory Board (EAB), which is comprised of representatives from the business, nonprofit, and entrepreneurial communities in Texas and throughout the country. EAB members help HDO faculty and staff enhance our mission, strengthen student recruitment and mentorship, and generate a distinct and excellent curriculum.

The EAB keeps faculty apprised of industry trends; likewise, the faculty updates the EAB on academic trends that may improve organizational performance. HDO appreciates the invaluable assistance of our External Advisors:
