The study club is made up of an advisory board whose role will be to develop the program for the inaugural year. The advisory board will be composed of members who will rotate on and off with other members of the study club so that everyone gets an opportunity to influence and contribute to our sustainable success. The make up will be such that each discipline is represented ensuring that the academic year is comprehensive, unbiased and highly meaningful to everyone.
