2019-2020 LAS Alumni Association
Board of Directors
Board members of the LAS Alumni Association are devoted—they donate their time and creativity to build lifelong connections between alumni and LAS. And considering that there are more than 171,000 living alumni, that’s a big undertaking.
The LAS Alumni Association was founded in 1984 as a member-supported organization to offer an array of activities so that LAS alumni may continue to learn, grow, and stay involved with their college community. The organization’s all-volunteer board of directors oversees these activities:
- Biannual meetings, one in Urbana and one in Chicago
- Programming for alumni events
- Selection of award recipients
In their roles as ambassadors for the college, they represent the values, traditions, and beliefs in excellence that are the core of the college to other members of the university, the alumni body, and the public at large.

Apply to serve on the board
LAS graduates who are interested in serving on the board are encouraged to apply by completing the online application form and attaching a statement of interest and a resume or reference letter.
Alumni board members serve as advocates for the college and volunteer their time to help with a variety of initiatives, including but not limited to student support and engagement, alumni support and engagement, and alumni awards. Those selected serve a four-year term and must be able to come to LAS Alumni Association meetings, attend student and alumni events, and serve on committees.
We encourage nominees from across all LAS majors and graduation years. This is a highly competitive volunteer opportunity. If you are not selected as a board member, opportunities may exist for you to volunteer in other capacities.
