SI Executive Committee and Board of Directors

Providing overall direction to our purpose, planning and activities, SI’s Executive Committee & Board of Directors have been indispensable from the beginning. The Board of Directors, tasked with providing more strategic direction, meets annually to ensure our guiding principles, mission, values and code of conduct are being met. Then, as a subset of the Board, our Executive Committee meets monthly to offer more tactical support, providing guidance on programming direction and faculty referrals alongside feedback on SI events to continue to shape and refine our offerings.
