    The purpose of the Elmira College Alumni Association (the Association) is to serve and promote the mutual interests of Elmira College (the College) and its alumni through and in collaboration with the College’s Office of Advancement and the staff member directing Alumni Relations. The goals of the Association shall be:

    (a) To organize, integrate, and support the alumni in an association for the mutual benefit and support of the basic values and goals of the College.
    (b) To engage and foster relationships among alumni, faculty and staff, current students, parents, friends, and others in the College community.
    (c) To develop and support programs and activities that will enhance and benefit the Association and College
    The Board currently has 25 volunteer members, and we actively seek and encourage other alums to join. The Board meets three times a year on Campus (March, June and September), and they are an integral part of Admissions recruitment, Campus events, Alumni Chapters and student engagement.
