Members of the new 2012-13 UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs board of advisors met in a newly refurbished conference room at the school on Tuesday morning to discuss the School’s strategic plan and initiatives for the upcoming school year.
During the gathering, Dean Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. announced the appointments of Chair Susan F. Rice and Vice Chairs Cynthia McClain-Hill and Michael F. Fleming. Members provided feedback on the school’s mission statement and putting the strategic plan into action, and heard presentations by social welfare assistant professor Ian Holloway and social welfare Ph.D. candidate Sara Pilgreen.
The Luskin board of advisors is made up of civic leaders, business executives and social entrepreneurs. The full board meets twice annually in an effort to shape the School’s vision and strategic plan.
