CLAS Alumni Board

The CLAS Alumni Board, which held its first meeting in September 2007, now has 19 members representing our college's diverse alumni. These successful and influential graduates of CLAS programs assist the dean to advance the college's mission and strategic goals. At annual meetings and through the work of subcommittees throughout the year, this board encourages ongoing relationships between alumni and the college, the growth of internship and co-op opportunities for students, advocacy with legislators and other influencial friends, and networks to improve career options for our graduates. The CLAS Alumni Board meets each fall.



Distinguished Alumni-in-Residence

The CLAS Distinguished Alumni-in-Residence Program provides a venue for departments to invite outstanding alumni back to campus to share their post-graduation experiences with the GVSU community.  Through the program, our distinguished alumni have the opportunity to share their insights about what constitutes strong academic preparation for students.



Homecoming 2016 will be on Saturday, October 15!    Come help us celebrate.  See Mindgating page.
