The Alumni Association creates a space in which Haverford's alumni can interact within a community of people who shared a unique undergraduate experience. All Haverford graduates and honorary degree recipients are considered members of the Alumni Association. No membership dues are required.
The Alumni Association's primary focus is to strengthen alumni relations between Haverford College and its alumni, while promoting and considering the best interests of the College. The Association provides support for all alumni events including Alumni Weekend and regional events, and works with the Center for Career and Professional Advising, Admission, Athletics, and other campus units on matters of importance to alumni.
Two core groups work within the Alumni Association to design programs which speak to the Association's values and goals: the Alumni Council and the Alumni Association Executive Committee (AAEC).
Alumni Council is comprised of all of the College's active alumni volunteers. While current numbers show more than 1,000 alumni actively volunteering, new faces are always welcome.
The Alumni Council provides a structural framework for programs and events facilitating alumni connections with College faculty, staff, and students in a productive, rewarding way.
The Council also elects the Association's six nominees to the College's Board of Managers and the members of the Alumni Association Executive Committee.
Alumni Association Executive Committee
The Alumni Association Executive Committee (AAEC) acts as the executive arm of the Association providing leadership and direction regarding alumni affairs. Members play a key role in building and maintaining lifelong relationships between Haverford alumni and the College, providing bridges across generations of Haverford graduates, developing valued services for classmates and friends, and giving a helping hand to current Haverford students.
Members address alumni interest in ongoing College affairs and discuss College policies to gain an alumni perspective. The AAEC also strives to foster open dialogue between the College and alumni. The AAEC is responsible for recognizing outstanding achievement and volunteer contributions to Haverford through the Alumni Association's awards program. All activities are supplemented by other committee and liaison work.
