Board of Experts

The Board of Experts is a group of college educators and professionals across the country who have agreed to provide their experience and knowledge in aiding the design and progress of the initiative. The BoE met for a Planning Group Meeting in November 2014 to discuss the logistics for the RCT design of the Challenge and to determine a list of possible interventions. The BoE is asked for guidance at key points during the Challenge. Several members of the BoE will also attend the May conferences to offer treatment schools advice on effective interventions.
