The CAM Advisory Group was convened in late 2012 to advise the dean on CAM objectives and activities, and to assist with generating support for CAM. The Advisory Group consists of founding CAM supporters, faculty, staff and asset management professionals. The group meets quarterly to support the continued advancement of the center.
