2021-2022 Alumni Board

The ComArtSci Alumni Board plays a pivotal role in increasing the value of a ComArtSci degree. Our alumni board members provide valuable guidance and bring awareness and understanding of the current industry landscape. These dedicated alumni leaders bring tremendous value to the College and the University through their contributions of time, expertise, leadership and financial support. We are grateful for their participation and ongoing support.

Alumni board members serve as ambassadors to the wider ComArtSci community and bring their special talents, skills and insights to enrich the student experience, foster lifelong connections for alumni and to celebrate and honor the successes of our outstanding alumni. Our alumni board is as diverse as the populations and the programs that we serve.

*Alumni board members serve two, three-year terms from July 1-June 30


Individuals who have previously served on the Board have a special perspective and may serve in a nonvoting capacity for one, three-year term on any of the Board’s committees through appointment of “Senior Fellow” by the Board of Directors.
