President's Council Sub-Committee

Comprised of select members of the President's Council at DeSales University, this sub-committee establishes working partnerships between the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture and the local/regional community.

General tasks of this committee include: planning & implementing marketing strategies; planning & implementing development strategies; and suggesting new programs and activities.

A specific project being undertaken by this Committee is the formation of a polling institute at DSU, to be administered by the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture.

The Committee usually meets three times each year in conjunction with the meetings of the full President's Council.
