Alumni Council serves as the advisory body to the College on behalf of the Earlham Alumni Association. Alumni of Earlham College are invited to become members of Alumni Council by the Council's Executive and Nominating committees or through self-nominations. Members may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms.
Alumni Council meets twice each year on campus to focus on programs and communications to fulfill a number of goals including:
In response to these goals, four committees with specific responsibilities carry out the work of Alumni Council:
The Recognition Committee participates in activities associated with the recognition of alumni and others associated with Earlham. This committee nominates and processes nominations received from alumni or friends for the Alumni Association's Outstanding and Distinguished Service awards. Nomination materials may be found on the awards web page.
The Campus Affairs Committee assists the Alumni Office with planning and implementing on-campus activities that are intended to strengthen relationships with Earlham. This committee also works to bridge the gap between students and alumni.
Regional alumni association conveners make up the Off Campus Affairs Committee whose members help the Alumni Office with planning and implementing off-campus programs and events. These activities are designed to foster fellowship and communication among alumni, parents and friends, and to help keep these groups informed about the needs of Earlham.
The Marketing Committee assists in planning communications with alumni, raising awareness of Alumni Council activities. This committee also reviews progress on strategies for national visibility and offers feedback.
The Development Committee works with other Council committees to promote alumni giving to Earlham and implement plans for raising funds to support specific Council projects.
