The College of Nursing created an Alumni Advisory Board in 2020 to facilitate communication and exchange of ideas between alumni and the College to promote the health of the community, and community needs for professional nursing education. The board will receive recommendations from alumni that inform and strengthen current and new services and programs, and strategic direction for the College. Additionally, the board will represent and promote a positive image of the College.
In order to promote an integrated alumni community, the College created the Alumni Ambassador Program. This initiative will enable connection, engagement and opportunities for alumni, faculty and current student to connect. All alumni are invited and encouraged to become an Alumni Ambassador.
