Advisory Board

Glucksman Ireland House is fortunate to be able to draw upon the invaluable knowledge and experience of our advisory board. Comprised of a small number of distinguished Irish citzens and Irish Americans, our board members represent a wide variety of professions, interests, and backgrounds.  

The advisory board is formally convened each semester to assist the organization with direction and scope.  Too, some members of the board have become directly involved in our activities, including supporting various projects and participating in our public events programs.
