The IIHR Advisory Board affords a medium through which the IIHR director and staff can obtain advice and counsel concerning their programs and plans, both short- and long-term, from interested persons in touch with the world of engineering education, research, and practice. The board provides a select audience for reports of IIHR’s activities and accomplishments, and helps IIHR design and execute its programs in an effective manner. The board gives advice on opportunities and effective strategies for generating private and public financial support of IIHR programs. IIHR Advisory Board members generally serve a five-year term.
