Penn Alumni Governance

Mission Statement for Penn Alumni

Penn Alumni encourages and promotes the continuing engagement of its members with the University of Pennsylvania, its programs and its students, thereby supporting the University and its ongoing development.

What is Penn Alumni?
Penn Alumni is comprised of alumni from Penn’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools who have completed at least one year of study in a degree-granting program. The Penn Alumni Board of Directors (the “Board”) is the governing body of Penn Alumni. The Board is led by an Executive Committee, the role of which is to support the Board and its committees as well as other alumni organizations that work closely with the Office of Alumni Relations. In certain instances, the Executive Committee may act on behalf of the Board.

What are the duties of the Penn Alumni Board of Directors?
Penn Alumni embraces and supports the interests and the mission of the University of Pennsylvania and its students and alumni by:
• Engaging alumni to be supportive volunteers and benefactors of the University.
• Fostering ways in which alumni can increasingly interact and collaborate with other alumni, students, faculty, and staff in the support and development of the University’s diverse and vibrant community.
• Aligning the activities of all alumni organizations in concert with the strategic plan of the University.
