Professional Advisory Board
The Professional Advisory Board is a group of industry, health and academic professionals who support and advise high-level initiatives at the School of Science, Technology and Health. The board meets twice a year to provide the dean of the School of Science, Technology and Health with professional insight to ensure programs, practices and investments are in line with cutting edge science, technology and health standards, and that these initiatives will provide the best outcome for students.
The ultimate goal of the Professional Advisory Board aligns with that of the school, which is to “equip a new generation of ethically thoughtful professionals in the sciences and health care; grounded in a Christian worldview, educated in an academically rigorous environment, ready to assume positions of leadership, and able to provide the clear moral vision the world desperately needs."

“Biola’s School of Science, Technology and Health not only prepares students to thrive in various STEM professions, but also provides the resources so that graduates from the school are able to effectively integrate their Christian faith with their academic discipline, advancing both scientific and kingdom priorities.”
“Biola is an institution that has created a wonderful balance to educate students both spiritually and technically. The advancements in how the school is approaching new technology and innovation is inspiring and I am proud to have the ability to serve the institution and the students.”
“Biola University offers a unique educational opportunity particularly for students interested in the health sciences. Its programs afford vigorous training in these disciplines not only from a solid scientific perspective but with an added appreciation of how they give testimony to an awesome Creator.”
"My mother was from the class of '42 and she talked about how Biola influenced her life. Later, I have encountered some particularly outstanding individuals only to discover they too went to Biola. Biola is committed to STEM. Their strategic growth in faculty and programs together with the Stewart Science Honors Program has been particularly impressive. Truly there is no limit in sight!"
