In coordination with the Department of Advancement, the Alumni Association Leadership Council (AALC) assists with a number of alumni and student programs and services, such as events, alumni awards, student and alumni mentoring programs, enrollment activities and more. 

The AALC is a 28-member council with five officers on the executive committee and 23 members. Each member serves on a working committee. 

2020-2021 Board Committees

The board has six standing committees. 

  • Executive Committee
  • Enrollment Committee
  • Events Committee
  • Service Committee
  • Professional Development Committee
  • Alumni Leadership Committee

The committees are subject to change based on the interests of its members and needs of the College.

  • Serve on at least one committee, actively participate and follow through.
  • Serve as an ambassador for the college, and help raise the visibility of the alumni association and its programs and services by being present, whenever possible, at College and association activities.
  • Support the College financially to the best of your ability, making Aquinas College a personal philanthropic priority.
