The Cowan Center™ Council members are ambassadors for the Dallas Institute’s Louise and Donald Cowan Center for Education™. The Council is comprised of two parts: civic leaders who are dedicated to sharing the Cowan Center™ vision with those in their realms of influence and educators whose expertise and counsel influence and enlarge the work of the Cowan Center™. A number of both the civic leaders and the educators who serve on the Council are alumni of Cowan Center™ programs.
