Membership in the Kalamazoo College Alumni Association is open to those who earn degrees from the College as well as former students who attended the College for at least six quarters. The Alumni Association exists to promote and maintain a lifelong, active relationship between the College and alumni, and to involve K alumni in meaningful volunteer efforts on behalf of the College. Your active involvement in the Association is vital in promoting the College’s distinctive educational mission, our nationally-recognized curriculum called the K-Plan, and sustaining the legacy of service that distinguishes K alumni.
Alumni Association Engagement Board (AAEB)
The Alumni Association is governed by an Engagement Board that meets on campus two times each year. The group is responsible for the general direction, control, and management of the Association’s business. In addition, the Engagement Board serves in an advisory capacity regarding new programs and volunteer opportunities, helps to organize alumni events, assists admissions and development efforts, and administers the Association’s awards programs.
Candidates for board membership should demonstrate an interest in the College through active participation in class reunions, regional activities, and/or volunteer programs of the College (new student recruitment, assisting students with career development, or fund raising). The nominating committee encourages self-nominations. Nominate someone today!
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Through the Kalamazoo College Alumni Association’s inclusive communications and opportunities for engagement, we strive to have a group where every alum feels that the alumni association is a “home” intended for them — a place to belong. Commitment to anti-racism and respect for the diversity of experience and breath of thought among our 20,000+ alums are key parts of this effort. Continued learning about diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice serve to drive our evolution into a more just community. The membership of the Alumni Association Engagement Board (AAEB) and the AAEB alumni awardees demonstrate our resolve to so evolve.
