College of Arts and Humanities

Arts and Humanities Advisory Board

The Arts and Humanities Advisory Board (AHAB) consists of carefully selected community members who are willing to make a personal commitment to support the College of Arts and Humanities.

The goal of the AHAB is to create and promote a positive image for, and understanding of, the College of Arts and Humanities. The board actively engages in increasing funding for the College, enhancing our student enrollment, recognizing and rewarding student accomplishments, and expanding linkages between the College and the Central Valley’s art, cultural, and educational institutions.

Each year the board organizes and undertakes special projects and events in support of the College and to accomplish the above objectives.  The board sponsors the annual Arts in Motion banquet to celebrate student excellence by honoring students nominated by each department for the Dean’s undergraduate and graduate medals.  The event also showcases the academic and artistic accomplishments of the students of our College’s students. See the Advisory Board Bylaws.
