Appointed by Elon University’s president, the Elon Alumni Board engages with the Office of Alumni Engagement and senior administrators to represent the alumni body to the university on a range of important issues. The board is also organized into several committees that partner with staff to make recommendations concerning alumni programs, benefits and services. Members of the board exemplify what it means to be an Elon partner, advocate and investor.
