Alumni Board Committees
Per its 2012 - 2015 Strategic Initiatives plan, the Alumni Board has developed the following committees to tackle specific tasks. Alumni of all ages, experience, and interests are needed to help organize and execute these goals. Each committee is staffed by a Board member, and is comprised of Board and non-Board members alike; all committees are open for participation. Interested alumni should contact the Office of Alumni Relations (562.907.4222 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
