Alumni Council & Chapters

Whether you plan to visit campus in the coming weeks or just stay connected through social media, we offer you a number of ways to make a difference, not only for other alumni but for current and future students.

Join Alumni Council

In the 2015-16 academic year, the Office of Alumni Engagement completed a year-long self-study of the Alumni Council that resulted in a new structure. Our purpose in reorganizing was to create a revitalized, committed and strong Alumni Council based on best practices for volunteer councils. The Alumni Council meets twice a year on campus along with one additional meeting utilizing technology. Terms will be for three years, and council members can serve a max of two consecutive terms. Read more about the new structure of the Alumni Council.

If you’re interested in being a part of the Alumni Council, contact Ashley Helmstetter, executive director of Alumni Engagement, at
