Board of Advisors

The School of Foreign Service benefits from the advice and guidance of a Board of Advisors. The Board of Advisors is a group of engaged individuals united by the desire to assist SFS in maintaining its excellence into the future. The Board consists of approximately 35 members drawn from a community of business and civic leaders – many of whom are alumni or parents of students and all of whom share in and support SFS’ mission. The chair and vice chair of the Board of Advisors are Steven Buffone and Olga Maria Campano Beeck.
