In addition to HU’s Government Technology Institute (GTI) Sponsors who will continue to serve as expert advisors for public sector programs – this new advisory board will collaborate with HU to provide their keen insight and business experience, assisting us to meet the professional development demands of the corporate community.

  • Identifying new leading-edge methods for learning
  • Providing perspective unique to the business community
