Knight Campus Internal Advisory Board

The role of the Internal Advisory Board (IAB) is to provide counsel and make recommendations to the Knight Campus executive director and the University of Oregon president on scientific vision and necessary structures and supports for the Knight Campus. Furthermore, the IAB will act as the leadership committee for academic and administrative procedural matters as we establish the Knight Campus as an academic unit at the UO.

The initial directives of the Knight Campus IAB include:

  • Formalizing all Knight Campus governance policies
  • Discussing and vetting scientific and innovation programs
  • Reviewing and finalizing the Knight Campus diversity plan

Members are appointed to two and three year terms to allow for institutional knowledge generation and continuation to occur throughout the life of the IAB. Members are appointed jointly by the president and the executive director.
