DEC. 5, 2005--The University of Wisconsin - River Falls College of Business and Economics named two new members to its student advisory board this year.

"It's a great way to learn about CBE," said new advisory board member David Hunt, who is a business administration major from Brainerd, Minn. "I have learned a lot about the accreditation process and how important it is for the college."            

Newly appointed advisory board member Mark Lindberg, who is a business administration/management information systems major from Perham, Minn., shared the same sentiment. "I like taking an active role in and having influence on the direction of the college," he said.

Six students from last year remain on the board, and the two new members were selected through an application process. The students have status on the board until they graduate, and are chosen to represent different majors and class levels throughout the college.

"I love being a part of the student advisory board," said board member Anthony Harstedt. "There are not many universities that give students that opportunity to meet their dean on a nearly one-on-one basis. It is one of the many advantages of UW-RF."

The board held a dean's forum for students to interact with CBE Dean Barbara Nemecek. Members received training and worked to advise non-majors with CBE advisor Ellen Schultz. At the beginning of the semester, they also went on a retreat. The members also have the opportunity to see firsthand how the CBE accreditation process is coming along.

"This board serves in an advisory capacity to the dean on key issues of the college, in addition to representing CBE on campus and at off-campus functions," Nemecek said. "We have an excellent cross-section of student representatives and I look forward to working closely with them in supporting our college's educational experience."

Ellsworth: Amy Delamater, business administration and economics double major, sophomore.
Elk Mound: DiAnna Steines, business administration and animal science with equine emphasis double major, sophomore.
