Class Officers at Gustavus

A Short History

A class agent program began in 1954, modeled after a program at Dartmouth College. The purpose of the class agent program was to weld the class together into an active cohesive group and to be a liaison between classmates and the College administration. In February of 2011, the Gustavus Alumni Association introducted a new class leadership structure to serve the current and future needs of the College and its alumni. The new program officially launched on September 30, 2011 during Homecoming weekend--a date that also coincided with the College's Susquicentennial Celebration.

The new class officer model is specifically designed to increase and sustain alumni engagement, participation and support for the mission-central work of the College. Class officer positions include president, vice president/reunion chair, communications chair, annual fund chair and student recruitment chair.
