Alumni Council

As the representative voice of the CSU’s four million global alumni, the Council plays an active role in helping to shape CSU policy and participating in strategic decision-making.

Members of the Alumni Council meet regularly with CSU leaders and participate on systemwide committees to ensure that alumni are represented. The Alumni Council designates a representative to the following:

  • The CSU Board of Trustees
  • The System Budget Advisory Committee
  • The California State Student Association
  • The Academic Senate of the CSU

In addition:

  • The Alumni Council president and members of the Executive Committee meet the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor to discuss CSU priorities and the Alumni Council’s efforts to promote and protect the interests of the CSU.
  • The Alumni Council president or the president’s designee is a member of the selection committee for the CSU Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement.​

The Alumni Council convened a special committee to explore challenges and opportunities and to develop recommendations to increase the level of meaningful alumni-student engagement in support of student success. The written report with the committee’s findings is now available​.
