External Advisory Board

The CDHI has five levels of governance. These are: the leadership team; the Steering Committee, and our External Advisory Board. In addition to these two, the Vice-President, Research & Innovation’s Strategic Initiatives Office convenes two other groups to whom we report: the Dean’s Council (meets annually) and the Implementation Committee (meets three times annually).

Our External Advisory Board is comprised of 9 members drawn from 3 constituencies: global leaders in critical digital humanities (university-based); community partners of national and international visibility; and members supporting financial sustainability, drawn from foundations, government, and industry.

The External Advisory Board meets twice per year. We have commitments from most members now and are finalizing the composition. We will hold our first Board meeting in early 2022.
