The Woltemade Center is guided by an Advisory Board. They dedicate expertise, knowledge, leadership, and financial resources to the mission of The Center.

The Woltemade Center Advisory Board provides leadership and support to Ohio Wesleyan University and The Woltemade Center for Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship. The Board helps to build strong relationships between the business community and the school by encouraging organizations to engage interns, recruit students, employ graduates, participate in executive education, and contribute to student learning through mentoring, experiential projects and classroom visits. They assist in meeting the financial objectives of the Woltemade Center and its programs.

The Woltemade Center Advisory Board meets twice a year at Ohio Wesleyan University. Meetings typically coincide with the Board of Trustees meetings in the fall and spring.
