The activities of the College of Business are supported and monitored by the Dean's Advisory Council (DAC). This Council, a select group of successful alumni and friends of the college, was organized in 1990. A primary function of the DAC is to provide advice and support to the Dean in their efforts to attain the highest level of quality in undergraduate and graduate education. This distinguished body meets in plenary session twice a year, at Lehigh.

The chair of the Dean's Advisory Council is Christopher Scott '94. Mr. Scott is the Council's eighth chair following John Chrin '85, '86, '10P, Brad Scheler '74, '05P, '08P, '09PG (2011-2012), Bob Brown '78 (2004-2011), Fred Fraenkel '71, '03P (2000-2004), Paul N. Leitner '76 (1996-2000), Frank Speigel '57 (1995-1996), and Joseph Welch '56 (1990-1994).

Council members have a business focus with broad representation from diverse organizations and working backgrounds. The current Dean's Advisory Council consists of a cross-section of Lehigh alumni and friends who are in various phases of their business careers.
