Alumni Council

Started in the fall of 2006, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Alumni Council serves as an advisory and working group, providing Kenan-Flagler alumni with leadership opportunities and meaningful connections to the Business School.

The Council consists of a select group of alumni representing all degree programs, reflecting the alumni community in regards to geography, industry, diversity and years of work experience. Council members serve as ambassadors and advocates for the School, providing philanthropic support, as well as advice and counsel on alumni relations to the Dean and the Advancement office. All activities are designed to continually increase the level of alumni engagement and support of the School and its community.

Council members take an active role in engaging and supporting the School and its alumni community through participation in Council meetings and by serving on a Council committee. School and Council leadership provide productive and meaningful interaction at Council meetings and during the intervening periods. Meetings will provide a balance of social and business opportunities geared to create a continued sense of pride and a strong sense of ownership in the future direction of the School.
