From your Alumni Board
My fellow Seahawks,
As your Alumni Association Board president, I have the honor of serving the alumni community in partnership with an incredible leadership team and dedicated board members. As volunteers, we collectively advocate and support the Alumni Association’s goals, programs and services, and we do our best to represent our global community of over 27,000 alumni.
The Alumni Association Board of Directors is here to serve all of you. Our primary mission is to engage and connect with alumni across generations and locations. Every board member serves on one of our three core committees:
Through the leadership of our Alumni Engagement committee, we look to connect Seahawks with one another, provide knowledge sharing through our Alumni Speaker Series and inspire others to give back.
Our Student Engagement committee focuses on the career development of our current students through events like Career Conversations and alumni panels.
Our Campus Engagement committee looks to embrace all members of the community — our faculty and staff, our departments and our leaders — that make Wagner Wagner.
As a board, we are constantly thinking of how we can connect with you through events, volunteer engagements and networking opportunities that benefit current students and alumni alike. We are dedicated to representing the vibrant diversity of our Wagner College community by ensuring that we grow our board’s membership, not only in class years but also in career and volunteer expertise, race, gender identity and sexual orientation. This commitment expands beyond the board through our volunteer-driven alumni affinity groups: Women’s Professional Network, Black Professional Alliance and OUTWagner.
As we look to 2021 and beyond, we look forward to welcoming you in person on campus this fall for what will be an unforgettable event: Wagner Weekend, Oct. 1 and 2, bringing together the best parts of our beloved Homecoming and Reunion traditions.
We salute our three board members who have completed their terms after serving six consecutive years. We are grateful for their dedication and contributions to the association: Donna D’Ermilio ’75, Ellen Huffman Mathias ’14 and Christian Rautenstrauch ’13.
A warm Seahawk welcome to our newest members joining the board: Aurora Brennan ’13, Nicole Giammarinaro ’07 and Sarah Braun ’14 M’18 M’20.
Stay involved and connected, whether in person, on Zoom, through social media or at events. We would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Share your updates and let us know what matters to you.
