The WiSE Faculty Advisory board consists of active CSHL research faculty, who have demonstrated their commitment to the WISE mission. The primary responsibility of the Faculty Board is to provide mentorship and guidance to WiSE members. More specifically, the obligations of the Faculty Advisory Board are summarized as follows:
- The WiSE Executive Student Board meets with the Faculty Advisory board once a year to to discuss the past year’s events and the tentative plan for the upcoming year; faculty advisors offer feedback and recommendations at this time.
- Faculty advisors are asked to act as instructors in professional development and education & outreach events hosted by the Executive Student board.
- Finally, our advisory board serves as a liaison between WiSE and the CSHL administration.
With the help of the Faculty Advisor Board, WiSE aims to strengthen its pursuit of our mission (see mission statement).
