About the CED Dean’s Advisory Council

The CED Dean’s Advisory Council is a select group of alumni and friends who care deeply about the College of Environmental Design and serve as its ambassadors with fellow CED alumni, alumni of the University, and others whose professional and philanthropic interests align with CED’s purpose.

Membership in the Dean’s Advisory Council is by invitation of the dean of the college. Council members provide strategic planning advice to assist the dean in promoting CED to constituencies beyond the campus, as well as encouraging alumni and others to make gifts to the college. Members also bring their external expertise to the college, informing the dean about notable trends in the architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning fields to help shape CED’s activities, programming, and facilities development.

The CED Dean’s Advisory Council evolved out of the CED Alumni (CEDA) board of directors, founded in 1990, which for almost two decades served the college by organizing events and programs such as the annual Distinguished Alumni Award Program and the CED Mentorship Program. In 2010 the CEDA board redefined and reformed itself as the CED Dean’s Advisory Council.
