Advisory Board

The M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan Advisory Board is comprised of current WKU students who strive to ensure a meaningful experience for all students participating in M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan.



  • Planning engaging social activities and special events for the M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan program
  • Overseeing the recruitment, selection, and training of M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan Mentors



The Advisory Board is comprised of five current WKU students serving in the following positions:

  • Socials Chair
  • Marketing Chair
  • Big Red’s Blitz Chair
  • Membership Co-Chair


Co/Chairs are responsible for:

  • Completing assigned job tasks
  • Making recommendations to the Board
  • Voting on decisions that ultimately shape the M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan program for the next year’s incoming class


While each Co/Chair is responsible for different aspects of the M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan program, the Board functions as a whole. The Co/Chair positions complement each other and work together to ensure the success of the program.
