Honors College Board of Visitors

Modeled after the community-based advisory boards of other WSU colleges, the Honors Board of Visitors serves as a dynamic and effective resource for the Irvin D. Reid Honors College. This select group of business executives, civic leaders and parents of Honors students provides a necessary link between Honors and the community at large. Board members act as public advocates for the Honors College, secure financial support for scholarships and other Honors initiatives, and make personal financial gifts that serve as an example to others.
