Duke Institute for Brain Sciences is governed by an Executive Board made up of University faculty representing the major units participating in the Institute’s work. The Executive Board is charged with advising the Institute on its programmatic priorities, strategic endeavors, and faculty recruitment. The Executive Board also monitors the Institute’s progress. Executive Board members serve as advocates and representatives of the Institute and vote on Members of the Institute. Executive Board members serve for at least one year, renewable indefinitely, and are appointed by the Director of the Institute.
The Institute is advised by a Chairs and Directors Advisory Council (CDAC) composed of Chairs and Directors of Departments, Centers, and Institutes at the University. CDAC is concerned with assessing the impact, effectiveness, and appropriateness of the Institute’s programs, ensuring that the programs and initiatives integrate effectively with those of departments, institutes and centers.
The Institute’s leadership is advised by an External Advisory Board composed of five members, all from institutions outside of Duke University chosen to represent a wide range of expertise and experience in the brain sciences, with particular emphases that are well-matched to the Institute’s Research Themes. The External Advisory Board assesses the Institute in relation to its vision and mission, reviews and evaluates the Institute’s strategies and programs, identifies opportunities for DIBS to participate and contribute at the local and global level, and advises on Institute development and fundraising opportunities.
