Board of Advisors

GSPM’s Board of Advisors is made up of leaders from the forefront of today’s political and communications arenas who are active and engaged participants in the life of the school.

They provide valuable financial contributions and act as advocates on the school's behalf. The board includes former members of Congress, as well as executive administration officials, national party chairs, presidential campaign managers, Washington power lobbyists, and public relations elites.

The board plays an essential role in recruiting adjunct faculty to teach at the school, as well as attracting high-profile guest lecturers and speakers. Their advocacy of the merits of the applied education our graduates receive at GSPM has raised the profile of our degrees in the political job market.
