Student Advisory Board 

The Student Advisory Board members act as ambassadors, connecting our corporate partners to students on campus.

The Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing's Student Advisory Board (SAB) seeks to facilitate relationships between the Center’s Corporate Advisory Board and various majors at the University of Arizona, including those in the retailing and consumer sciences program. These ambassadors coordinate student programs and support the Center’s common values and share in its vision to promote and develop the industry’s future retail leaders. Ambassadors are selected to serve on the Student Advisory Board through a selection process at the end of each semester, based on faculty references, classroom performance, professionalism and genuine interest.
