The Advisory Committee members assist in setting the direction and vision for the GCI UCLA Extension program and provide valuable input to ensure it meets its mission  and remains compliant with its mandate. They provide advice on the prioritization of GCI UCLA Extension activities. In this capacity, the Advisory Committee contributes to the review of courses to determine if such courses meet GCI’s mission and priorities. In addition, the Advisory Committee provides input to the Steering Committee on the overall GCI Program, and in doing so identifies both strengths and opportunities for improvement within GCI.

The UCLA Extension GCI Advisory Committee members serve as ambassadors for GCI throughout the Cybersecurity arena and beyond. The Advisory Committee meets approximately two to four times a year.
