John B. Patton established an Alumni Council for the Department in 1966. Robert R. Shrock was an early chair. Beginning in 1992 members were permitted who were not alumni, and the name was changed to the Advisory Board. The Board’s by-laws now state the purposes of the Board to be: to advise and aid the Department chair and faculty on long-range planning, policy and program development; to assist in resource development for the Department and to promote relationships between the Department, its alumni, and organizations and individuals outside the University.
