Alumni Association Board of Directors

The Board of Directors establishes policy and reviews and critiques programs and activities conducted by the Alumni and Parent Engagement team that support the mission of the association and the College. The Board determines Association awards, selects new board members, and considers any other matters which need formal approval.

Board Selection

New board members shall be elected by a majority vote of existing Board members. All efforts will be made to have the Alumni Board be representative of the Alumni Association in class year, vocation, gender, and residence.

Board Expectations

Board members serve a three-year term with the option of serving a second term. Members are expected to:

  • Talk about Gustavus at every available opportunity.
  • Encourage high school students to look at Gustavus.
  • Talk with other alumni about past, present, and future positive Gustavus experiences and ways they can be involved.
  • Be enthusiastic supporters of Gustavus.
  • Set an example to consistently support the College financially and with service, especially during the board term.
