CSIS Advisory Board

The CSIS Advisory Board was formed in 2001 by the Chair of the department, Dr. Victor Raj. The members serve as the sounding board for the department and provide guidance in all matters related to the well-being and success of the department, its programs and its students. It consists of leaders from industry and academia. Members are invited to participate and typically come to Murray once every Spring (in April). Some of our leaders have even added their name to awards for Outstanding Seniors and Graduates - United Systems, Ag Connections, Google, and An Island LLC.
