All PAB representatives are required to attend three orientation sessions in order to join the board:
- Upon selection, PAB representatives receive information from the Office of Campus Community Relations on the history and background of the PAB
- PAB external counsel reviews the PAB’s Bylaws, Procedures and confidentiality agreement
