The mission of the Dyson Advisory Council (DAC) is to provide support, advice, and counsel to the leaders, faculty, students, and staff of the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management on issues central to the undergraduate program and to build bridges to the school’s alumni.
The Council’s objectives are fivefold:
To advocate for the Dyson School’s undergraduate program and Cornell with employers and business leaders and to build the school’s national and international reputation.
To enhance undergraduate students’ relationships with employers, donors, and research and educational partners by providing assistance in placing Dyson School undergraduates and alumni in career positions and internship opportunities, including recruitment, as well as sponsoring events and activities and providing areas of focus.
To support the school’s fundraising efforts through individual gifts and outreach
To advise on the strategic directions of the Dyson School’s undergraduate program, to communicate the needs and requirements of the business and applied economics communities to ensure our graduates have the skills for success, and to guide and assist in developing new programs, centers, and initiatives.
To assist the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business Alumni Affairs and Development staff identify others who can support the Dyson School financially and programmatically, including on this council.
