Alumni Council

The Alumni Council is an advisory forum of diverse alumni representing all faculties and colleges. Members provide meaningful input on emerging issues that advance the vision and mission of the University and the Alumni Association, foster active communication among key alumni constituencies and stakeholders, and assist in strengthening the relationship graduates have with their alma mater and each other. The Alumni Council is a standing committee of the Alumni Association Board of Directors and acts in an advisory, not a governance capacity, to the University.
