Advisory Board

The advisory board oversees the institutional development of CIRHUS. The agreement establishing the CIRHUS states that the advisory board supervises the scientific orientation of the Center and the operation and implementation of its programs and activities. It advises the Director and Deputy Director on policy issues, and serves as a review board for CIRHUS initiatives. The board also guides the CIRHUS to ensure that all its activities are in accord with the policies and vision of both CNRS and NYU. Its members are appointed for four years.
