Biography/History

Princeton University's Advisory Councils were instituted on a university-wide basis in 1941. Each advisory council is comprised of alumni and other individuals who act in an advisory capacity to the various academic departments through meetings with departmental faculty, administration, and the Alumni Council. While in their original incarnation the Advisory Councils were also responsible for completing a departmental self-study every three to five years, since 1980 that duty has been ceded to special ad hoc committees.
