Alumni Advisory Board

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.

Please contact any of the current members of the AAB listed below. Your input is important to us and will help us serve the College.
