Industry Advisory Board
The Industry Advisory Board is a valuable resource for the College of Arts and Sciences at Western Michigan University. This board provides program development insights and unique industry perspectives. Board members serve as ambassadors externally for the sustainable brewing program and create alliances between the program and business. Many advisory board members provide valuable internship experiences for students.
The board is divided to represent four major industry categories to ensure that the program has the benefit of the perspectives of a broad range of roles in the industry.
