  16. Fashion and Textile Management’s Industry Advisory Network • Background: The Fashion and Textile Management Program housed within the Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management Department has been following a three year Strategic Plan that envisioned stronger partnerships and collaboration with the Global Textile Industry. With continued enrollment growth rates, the need to connect students and faculty with an expanded scope of executives and companies that provide feedback of the Program and hire its’ graduates is important. • The Department founded the Industry Advisory Board in 2008, consisting of 22 members who meet twice a year on campus with faculty and students. • The Department also saw the need for a series of Global Industry Advisory Networks to complement the Board. The Plan calls for 4-5 of these networks located in key Industry regions around the world, that are a part of the large global community of Textiles. The first Industry Advisory Network was founded in New York City (2010), with Asia Network February 28, 2013
