Your Global Alumni Board



In 2012, in partnership with the staff in the Center for Alumni, Parents and Friends and Trustee Chairman Steve Manfredi '73, a new governance structure for the alumni association was introduced: the Global Alumni Board (GAB).

GAB is comprised of both appointed and elected directors, with positions dedicated to serving alumni who reside all over the world. 

From overseeing alumni communication plans and events to weighing in on university-wide initiatives such as the centennial celebration, GAB serves as a strong, supportive voice for our community. If you’re interesting in taking a leadership role, please send a note to:
