Alumni Board

The mission of the PLU Alumni Board is to assist the university in developing an alumni community whose members demonstrate a lifelong commitment to each other, devotion to PLU’s mission and investment in its future.

The Alumni Board in conjunction with the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations

  • fosters communication and relationships among alumni, students, faculty and staff
  • enhances alumni commitment to the university through development and support of service, investment, and life long learning opportunities
  • promotes celebration of accomplishments of the university and its students, faculty and alumni

The board meets twice a year on campus and conducts much of its business through the work of various committees. The Alumni Board provides on-going input into the many programs and services administered by the Alumni and Constituent Relations staff.
