The YAC meets four times per year to accomplish its three main goals:

Event Programming

  • The YAC plans four main events per year specifically for Young Alumni, with a balance between educational, social, networking, sporting and community service offerings. Additional social and networking events also take place intermittently, or as you want them! The events are purposeful, providing opportunities for personal and professional growth, and are designed to meet your professional, educational, social and philanthropic needs while ensuring quality and excellence.


  • The YAC and Alumni Association recognize the important role Young Alumni play at GVSU. The YAC works to promote its programs and events and Alumni Association benefits.


  • The YAC encourages continued relationships with GVSU, fostering active involvement and helping to develop future volunteers and leaders.
  • The YAC stresses participation in other areas of University life and members of the YAC hold spots on the Alumni Association Board, as well as at-large roles on the Alumni Association Awards Committee, to help select the Young Alumni and Outstanding Educator award winners.

Interested in joining the YAC and becoming part of the future of dynamic Young Alumni programming? Request an application - we are always looking for strong and dedicated alumni to fill roles on the Young Alumni Council.
