Get Involved

Alumni engagement is an excellent way for you to support your alma mater while maintaining contact with students, faculty, staff and fellow alumni. We have a robust menu of opportunities, offering a level of involvement that is meaningful for you and fits with your schedule.

You may simply want to receive the college newsletter or participate occasionally in a special event - either on campus or regionally. You may want to become more active and help to recruit and hire our graduates, speak to student groups, host student visits or hold an official position on the alumni advisory board. A gift to the college is another important and transformational way that you can be a part of the Alumni Community.

However you choose to engage with the college, your involvement is highly valued by the entire Alumni Community.
