About the Alumni Council
The Alumni Council is a 42-member volunteer group which strives to represent the views and interests of the entire alumni body through the work of its committees and programming efforts. The Council ensures that there is clear communication between alumni and the College, and encourages participation in all aspects of the college community.
In recent years, the Council has focused a great deal of energy on the expansion of the Alumni Council Scholarship Fund, mainly through the development of a successful annual auction. Additionally, members have worked to examine and expand the relationship that exists between the alumni body and various departments on campus.
The work of the Council is extremely important to further both the reputation and the success of Stonehill . While Council members are elected or appointed, membership on Council committees is open to all alumni.
