The University of Notre Dame Alumni Association has launched a new advisory board to guide the University’s engagement with its young alumni.
The Young ND Board will represent the interests of and steer programming for Notre Dame graduates who are 32 and younger. The new 16-person body will meet on campus twice a year and hold regular digital meetings.
The board will work closely with the Alumni Association’s network of Notre Dame clubs, developing and disseminating best practices for young alumni engagement for the 270 Notre Dame clubs spread out across the country and around the globe. Twelve members will serve as regional directors and collaborate directly with the young alumni coordinators of the clubs within their regions.
Outside of the club network, the Young ND Board will craft on-campus and digital initiatives to help young alumni celebrate Notre Dame. The board will strive to support and reach out to all members of the young alumni community with a focus on diversity and inclusion. It will also assist students as they transition to young alumni by serving and inspiring them throughout their time on campus.
“Our young alumni are so passionate about the University, and they are eager to stay connected with Notre Dame and their friends and classmates,” said Dolly Duffy, the executive director of the Alumni Association. “This board will dramatically increase our ability to deliver our young graduates the opportunities they crave online, on campus and in their local communities.”
