Alumni Association Board of Directors

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is an 18-member elected group of volunteers which strives to represent the views and interests of the entire alumni body through the committee and programming efforts. The Board ensures that there is clear communication between alumni and the University, and encourages alumni participation in all aspects of University life.  Board terms are 3-years in length and begin in July of the election year.

The Alumni Mentor Program, Alumni in Admissions, expanded networking events, and community service projects are just a few of the successful initiatives that the Board has focused energy on in the past few years.  Work continues on providing new and varied ways to keep alumni connected to Pierce. The work of the Board and the volunteer committees is critical to further both the reputation and the success of Franklin Pierce.
