Student Representative Membership Information

Student representatives serve a one-year term (September through April) eligible for renewal. Students are expected to attend the two full board meetings each year and two young alumni and student engagement committee meetings annually. It is a student’s responsibility to report at the two full board meetings updating alumni members on current student news as well as take alumni updates, events, programs, etc. back to the student body helping to bridge the gap between students and alumni.
