Started in the fall of 2006, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Alumni Council has served and supported the Dean, the School and Alumni Relations in varied and important ways. Initially set up as an advisory council to address current, pressing issues facing the School, the Council has transformed itself into an advisory and working council.
With the transition to assigned working groups, membership can help and support the School in targeted and meaningful ways. The Council acts as an extension of UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School within the members’ cities, communities, workplace and professional network. Council members take an active role engaging and supporting the School and broader alumni community through participation in Council meetings and serving on a Council committee.
Council members serve on one of four committees.
The UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School Alumni Council (the “Council”) acts as an extension of the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School (the “School”) within the members’ cities, communities, workplace and professional network. Council members take an active role engaging and supporting the School and broader alumni community through participation in Council meetings and serving on a Council committee.
The Council consists of a select group of School alumni representing all degree programs. In addition, it reflects the alumni community in regards to geography, industry, diversity and years of work experience. Council members serve as ambassadors of the School by engaging and organizing alumni. So all work efforts are designed to continually increase the level of alumni engagement and support of the School and its community.
The Council works directly with the Advancement Office, all degree programs and other School departments to discuss and work on current and ongoing issues within the school. In addition to being an advisory group to Advancement and the Dean, the Council is tasked with a variety of specific responsibilities determined by the School departments and the Council.
School and Council leadership will 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.
