LAS Alumni Council

2020-2021 LAS Alumni Council

The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences Alumni Council is a volunteer group of alumni who serve as advocates and advisors to LAS. These alumni are devoted—they donate their time and creativity to help build lifelong connections between alumni and LAS. And considering that there are more than 180,000 living alumni, that’s a big undertaking.

The all-volunteer directors who serve on the LAS Alumni Council are responsible for the following:

  • Serving as ambassadors of the College of LAS by promoting the value of a liberal arts and sciences degree
  • Acting as advocates by staying informed about the current priorities, initiatives, and needs of the College of LAS
  • Helping to develop and implement initiatives that support the College of LAS’ strategic priorities, with an emphasis on supporting and connecting with a diverse community of stakeholders (including but not limited to alumni, students, faculty, and donors) across multiple backgrounds, generations, geographical locations, and areas of affinity
  • Recognizing fellow alumni for their accomplishments and impact locally, nationally, and globally through the annual selection of award recipients
