In 1851, the Board of Trustees of Green Mountain College, in its efforts to seek help from the alumni for the College, provided direction for the establishment of what is now known as the “Alumni Advisory Board.”
The purpose of the AAB is to enhance the vibrancy of GMC. Specifically, the AAB sustains among alumni the spirit of their shared experience, supports the recruitment and retention of students, and assists in fundraising and garnering financial support for the College.
The Alumni Community exists to promote and maintain a lifelong, active relationship between the College and alumni, and to involve GMC alumni in meaningful volunteer efforts on behalf of the College. Your active involvement is vital in promoting GMC’s distinctive education mission, our top-ranked sustainability curriculum, and sustaining the legacy of service that distinguishes GMC alumni.
Serving as an alumni volunteer leader on the AAB is a great way be involved in the life of the College and help build for the future of GMC. Our volunteer leaders work to have a meaningful impact on the College and the lives of current students and fellow alumni. The AAB works in close partnership with staff in Advancement, Enrollment, Student Life and Career Services on a variety of key activities, including volunteer programming, communications, and event planning and support. The AAB Chair additionally serves on the Green Mountain College Board of Trustees, and helps maintain a close and informed relationship between these two important governing bodies.
