The Board of Advisors for the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) consists of leaders in business, education and public affairs appointed for the purpose of advising the Dean of the College as well as the Provost and the President of the University on opportunities for enhancement of the College.

The Board links the College to its alumni, the local community, the state of Vermont, the nation and the world of professional practice. It enables the College and the University to benefit from the experience and counsel of persons external to the University who have a wide range of experience, knowledge and expertise. The Board helps to make the activities and accomplishments of the College more widely known in order to enhance public recognition. It also assists in strengthening financial support for the College.
