Become a Board Member

Find out first hand just how rewarding it can be to serve as a volunteer on the Alumni Association Board or an Alumni Association committee.

Remote Opportunities

Don't live near campus? No problem. Many of our volunteers live across the country and around the world. Unless otherwise noted, committee membership is open to all alumni, as well as interested University faculty, staff, and students, pending approval by the Alumni Association President.
