“Advisory boards are a ready source of guidance, advice, and fresh perspectives for the schools they serve. And individual advisors act as ambassadors and advocates within their local spheres of influence. Spanning, as they do, the boundary between a seminary and its constituents, advisors are ideally situated to ‘convey the concerns and perspectives of the community to the institution and explain the institution’s vision and priorities to the community.’”
