PH/RS Advisory Board

As part of Marymount Manhattan College’s CityEdge program, each academic department sponsors an Advisory Board composed of accomplished professionals from across New York City with relevant knowledge, experience, and expertise in fields related to our respective programs. The PHIL/RS Advisory Board Members provide insight on the current and future state of their industry; review and offer suggestions on program curriculum development; assist with external relations and outreach to the industry; support career development initiatives; and identify job openings, internships, and other professional opportunities.
