The Advisory Board of Deans is the governing body of EarthLab and provides University of Washington administrative and fiscal oversight. The Deans ensure that EarthLab programs are aligned with UW priorities and connected to and engaged with initiatives across the University.
The Executive Steering Committee is comprised of UW faculty who facilitate EarthLab’s work by advising staff on strategic priorities, programming, new ideas and feedback for convenings, collaborations and other possible activity. They foster connections across and beyond UW as ambassadors for EarthLab, and together form a community of learning about new methods of connecting scholarship with society to address environmental challenges.
The Advisory Council is a body of volunteers from diverse professions and backgrounds that provides unique perspectives to help inform EarthLab programming. The Council works to connect decision makers outside of academia to UW resources. Advisory Council members advise the Executive Director in efforts to build and shape the new organization, introduce EarthLab to potential partners and collaborators, and raise awareness and financial support for EarthLab.
