Thunderbird Executive Leadership Council (TELC)

The Thunderbird Executive Leadership Council (TELC) will provide advice, counsel and energy to the CEO and executive leadership of the School, and will also help foster engagement through our worldwide network of Thunderbird Alumni Chapters.

The TELC will focus primarily on three objectives:

  • Meeting the needs of prospective students
  • Supporting currently enrolled students
  • Building opportunities and networking for alumni.

The TELC will provide not only advice, but also practical assistance in helping the School engage and improve its services and relevance. We expect the TELC to work closely with our worldwide Thunderbird Chapters, which will continue to be hubs of alumni engagement.

We are excited about the opportunities for renewed focus and energy that will come from a new advisory organization. The School benefits when its alumni engage and when we invite those who have non-alumni relationships to also support us. The TELC will be a vehicle that brings us together with a constructive agenda while also providing value for the members who choose to engage.
