Abstract

This article provides an overview of the typical roles and tasks of advisory groups in general, followed by a discussion of the roles and tasks the Interdisciplinary Generalist Curriculum (IGC) Project Advisory Committee was asked to assume and how these were fulfilled. It analyzes the lessons learned about advisory committees as a result of the IGC Project experience. Key elements of success in fulfilling advisory committee obligations include well-defined expectations, periodic evaluations, and clear communication between project leadership and the members of the advisory committee. In the spirit of lessons learned from the IGC Project, this critique identifies several philosophical and logistic issues that might be considered in the design and implementation of future projects, such as the need to choose committed, high-energy advisory committee members who are willing to perform many complex, time-consuming tasks.
