The Alumni Association organizes alumni, students, supporters and friends and directs their time, talents and resources to best serve the University. Modes of volunteer service include the Executive Board, Alumni Council and Past President's Council.

These groups supply endless volunteer hours and financial resources in hosting events locally and regionally.
