Advisory Council

The primary mission of the Leadership Advisory Council is to advise, counsel, and support the Schaefer Center for Public Policy. The Council has no fiduciary or governance responsibilities. Within this context the Council members will: 

  • advise the Schaefer Center on strategic direction for ongoing lines of policy research
  • identify emerging policy issues where the Schaefer can impact the policy discussion
  • assist with connecting the center with potential collaborators
  • assist in acquiring resources and fundraising in support of the center’s work.
