We also encourage alumni living and working outside of Minnesota and the United States to consider applying.

Board Expectations:

Board members are expected to attend four official alumni board meetings per academic year (July 1-June 30), typically held in September, November, February, and April that are each approximately 2 hours in length. Board members are able to attend meetings in person at the Humphrey School or remotely via video/phone conference. Each board member chooses a committee to serve on that meets in person/remotely in between each board meeting or as determined by the committee chair depending on the projects of each committee. Committees may include Alumni Relations, Student Relations, Development, and Nominations committees.
