Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a group of experts and professionals who advise and guide KU History on long-term, big-picture thinking that keeps KU History relevant and sustainable.

Areas with which the Advisory Council assists include the following:

  • Possible artifact donations to accept into KU History collections
  • Review of existing stories and current history in order to recommend research for new historical stories
  • Professional and experience-based guidance in areas with which KU History staff members lack expertise
  • Assessment of long-term strategic planning and goals
  • Legal and communication strategies and approaches
