Get Involved

Each spring, two new board members from the current fourth year undergraduate class, along with other alumni who have graduated in the last 12 years, are selected to serve on Young Alumni Council. The Council seeks alumni who are passionate about working to optimize the post graduate experience for all young alumni, regardless of their involvement as students or their current engagement with the University as alumni.
