Albers Alumni Board

Now is an exciting time to get involved and participate as a member of the Albers Alumni Board, celebrating its 15th year serving the business school and its alumni.

In September 2002 the Albers School of Business and Economics established the Albers Alumni Board with the help of some very committed alumni in support of the Albers mission, Albers students, and fellow Albers alumni. Our mission statement is:

'In support of the Albers School of Business and Economics, we enrich the lives and careers of Albers graduates and students by providing friendship, connections and resources; we are committed to growing a community of engaged alumni and business leaders.'

We welcome the expertise and involvement of all alumni, recent grads and seasoned professionals alike, as we intentionally and strategically expand our efforts to better the Albers alumni community. Our activities range from organizing events, such as the SU Crab Feed, to working with current students to enrich their educations.

If you would like to be involved with the Albers Alumni Board, fill out the Albers Alumni Board Application. You can become involved either as a full board member or serve on a committee of the board.

Special thanks to the current serving board members listed below for their care, energy, time, and support.
