The C4I Advisory Board consists of a number of accomplished interdisciplinary researchers, both faculty and staff, who represent the Department of Philosophy (C4I’s intellectual sponsor), the College of Arts and Letters, and Michigan State University more generally. The Advisory Board advises C4I leadership on strategic decisions and mission-related planning, in addition to supporting various center activities such as the UIC and the TGFP.
