In 1999, at the direction of the Howard University Board of Trustees, Howard President H. Patrick Swygert established a Board of Visitors for each school and college. Mr. Gerald Prothro, a member of the Howard University Board of Trustees, is chair of the Board. The Board of Visitors crafted the following mission and vision statements at their first meeting in October 2002.
The mission of the Board of Visitors is to develop a constructive working relationship with the administration and faculty of the CEA while understanding the role of the CEA in the overall structure of the University and the national arena of engineering, architecture and computer science education. The BOV should provide an informed perspective on the long and short-range objectives, the strengths and weaknesses, status in comparison to peer units, needs and recommendations for improvement of the College.
The vision of the Board of Visitors is to provide assessment, particularly in relation to peer institutions and support for fundraising and development goals of the CEA to raise the performance indicators in the areas of education, and service.
