Alumni Advisory Council

The University of Arizona Alumni Advisory Council is comprised of up to 23 directors who are responsible for overseeing alumni engagement and outreach efforts. 

The council works through a committee structure that oversees the strategic plan and various programming areas, which are designed to establish a lifelong relationship that begins with our current students and continues to ensure a "Wildcat for Life" tradition that keeps alumni connected to the university and their colleges.

Executive Officers/Executive Committee

The officers of the council are: the chair, chair-elect, the vice-chair/secretary and the most recent past chair available to serve. Under the Alumni Advisory Council's bylaws, the vice-chair/secretary position is in a line of automatic succession to assume the positions of chair-elect, chair, and then past chair. The council has established a succession planning policy that encourages current council members to consider leadership positions.
