Steering Committee

CUP’s Steering Committee provides critical guidance and direction to CUP to ensure that our activities and efforts reflect the issues that impact and influence the broader community.  Our Steering Committee has grown and its members eagerly volunteer their time to discuss challenging issues. Our members represent a variety of community and university organizations and agencies. The committee is chaired by Jeff Bisanz (University co-chair) and Martin Garber-Conrad (community co-chair). For more information on steering committee governance, please see their terms of reference.
