Alumni Council message

Over the last couple of years, Alumni Council has undertaken the important, but laborious work of reviewing (and ultimately rewriting) our group’s constitution, committee structure and organizational goals. Every member of Council was involved in the process and we now have a more nimble organization for moving forward.

Our current areas of focus:

  • Facilitation of alumni-to-alumni engagement through on campus and remote events.
  • Alumni-to-campus engagement focused around support for recruitment activities, career development, and general support for the well-being of College employees.
  • An increased and dedicated effort to be, both as individual members and as an organization, deliberately supportive of ways we can be more inclusive.

Alumni Council is seeking new members who have passion for support of Earlham College, and want to lend their time and talent toward these efforts. If you want to get involved, please visit the Alumni Council web page at earlham.edu/ac to learn more, and complete the nomination form. We look forward to seeing new Earlhamites get involved with the work of Alumni Council!

Regarding the Class Notes & Obituaries database

We are working on search/navigation issues with the database. Our apologies for the inconvenience. Currently it is not possible to select by a class year, for example, and see the results. The simplest way to find a class year or person is to enter the year or name in the search field (image, right)

The obituary for Melissa Johnson ’03 can be found online here. Earlham will hold a celebration of Melissa’s life on Sunday, Oct. 16, 11:30 a.m., on campus at Stout Meetinghouse.

The Earlhamite

As when it was founded in 1873, the mission of our alumni magazine is to “bear tidings of prosperity and vicissitudes of Earlham to its friends and supporters.” Today, it does that and more as it connects Earlhamites together from across the globe.
