The Hurford Center Student Student Advisory Board helps to determine future directions for student engagement with the Hurford Center. Comprised of three students, HCAB considers how coursework, senior theses, artistic practice, and other projects might best benefit from HCAH support. Meeting regularly with Center staff, Advisory Board members will also review and approve student grant proposals to the Student Arts Fund alongside members of the Hurford Center Steering Committee. Selected by Students Council, members serve for a one-year appointment but can re-apply for an additional term. Say hello to this year’s brand new Student Advisory Board for the Hurford Center!
