President’s Board of Advisors

The President’s Board of Advisors (PBA) provides advice to President Ohles as he works to fulfill Nebraska Wesleyan University’s mission, vision, and strategic plan. Members of the PBA are alumni, parents or children of alumni, and other devoted friends of the University. Every member of the President’s Board of Advisors is an ambassador for Nebraska Wesleyan University.

Membership on the President’s Board of Advisors is an honor bestowed on individuals whose advice helps the President to identify challenges and opportunities for NWU. The president selects persons for membership based on their accomplishments, their devotion to the institution and its values, and the variety of perspectives and experiences that they bring to this role. The PBA meets twice during each school year on the Nebraska Wesleyan campus.
