The efforts of the Center for Faculty Engagement & Advancement (CFEA) are informed and guided by faculty and student advisory groups. Collectively, these groups serve to provide critical insight into the needs of faculty and students, bring to light important issues on campus, and advise the Center's staff on development and implementation of programs, services and resources.

STUDENT ADVISORY BOARDS
There are separate advisory boards for students at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral level. These student advisory boards help guide the CFEA in its pursuit of improving the student experience by elevating the importance and quality of teaching and improving faculty-student interaction both in and outside of the classroom.
Members represent student interests by sharing insight from their own personal experiences and those of their classmates, providing feedback on programs, services and resources and making recommendations for future initiatives.
Members of all three boards share a strong sense of commitment to the Stevens community and have a genuine interest in improving the student experience. Most all of these students are very involved on campus or in their academic departments, and many of them hold leadership positions within campus groups.
