The President’s Advisory Board, which replaced the Board of Overseers, has many former overseers as well as new members. The group focuses on ensuring support for the strategic priorities of Whitman. They serve both as advisors to the president and cabinet and as special ambassadors for Whitman with students, alumni, friends and prospective students.
