  1. Make representations to the FIMS community about the doctoral program;
  2. Act as the official channel between Administration and those enrolled in the doctoral program;
  3. Undertake advocacy on behalf of individual members with respect to the program and matters affecting members as a consequence of pursing the doctorate;
  4. Provide commentary on other aspects of the Faculty as such aspects directly or indirectly affect the doctoral program or members of the Association;
  5. Establish, maintain and extend contacts and ties with individuals or groups external to the FIMS community; and
  6. Foster collegiality among members
