Connect and engage
Alumni Association boards
The University of Utah Alumni Association is governed by a Board of Directors, composed of University alumni who volunteer to oversee the activities of four other affiliated groups: the Emeritus Alumni Board, Young Alumni Board, Student Alumni Board, and Beehive Honor Society Board. (The Association also coordinates the student MUSS Board that oversees The MUSS student athletics fan club.) All board members help the Alumni Association advance its goals of helping alumni connect and engage with one another and the University, foster education through scholarships and other efforts, and find resources to help advance their careers. All board members serve three-year terms except Student and MUSS board members, who each serve one-year appointments.
The mission of the Alumni Association, and its affiliated boards, is to support the University of Utah’s pursuit of excellence by forging and preserving lifelong relations with alumni, students and the community.
