Frank Avila, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago
at the 2010 External Advisory Board Meeting

The purpose of the External Advisory Board (EAB) of the Institute is to provide guidance on the relationship of IESP and its programs to current trends and opportunities in research, the regulatory environment, and new models of environmental management outside of the University. Its members suggest new directions for IESP, offer commentary on existing programs and results of ongoing research at UIC, and assist in mobilizing resources for underwriting IESP initiatives.

The membership of the EAB is drawn from knowledgeable experts from industry, government (both federal and local), non-profit agencies, and academia. Members are appointed for three year renewable terms by the Director, with consultation from the IESP staff and faculty.
