The continued success of Valparaiso University and its colleges depends on the personal commitment and active involvement of a select group of individuals who embrace the privilege to serve and the responsibility to lead. National Council members are expected to be zealous advocates on behalf of Valpo, enthusiastic communicators of the mission and vision, and to play an integral role in the development and leadership of the College.

The National Council provides the Dean with expertise, advice, and useful critique about the college’s programs, mission, and direction. Its current membership includes:
