Mendoza Graduate Alumni Board seeks new candidates

Author: Tim Ponisciak

The Mendoza Graduate Alumni Board is comprised of 30 alumni who love Notre Dame. They give back by providing input about new programs; getting involved in College-related volunteer opportunities; and acting as ambassadors for Mendoza in their local communities.

Each December, the Office of Graduate Alumni Relations opens up the nomination process for new members. Alumni from any of Notre Dame’s graduate business programs (MBA, EMBA, MSA, MNA or MSB/MSM) are eligible to apply.

Ideal candidates will have stayed involved with the College since graduation, will be involved with their local ND alumni club, and will have some nonprofit volunteer leadership experience. Apply here.

Applications are due by midnight on December 12.

Additional details:
• The Board meets twice a year on campus with program directors and faculty. The meetings typically are held on the Friday before the Blue-Gold game and one Friday of a September or October home game weekend.
• The Board will also have two conference calls each year to receive updates on programs. Additionally, members act as advocates for Mendoza, participating in volunteer activities through the Admissions, Career Development and Student Services departments. They also assist with Mendoza receptions taking place close to their home or place of business.
• To qualify, you must hold an MBA, EMBA, MSA, MNA or MSB/MSM degree from Notre Dame. Board members serve a three-year term, with the option for a second three-year term.
• Each Board member serves on one of the following committees: Alumni Engagement, Advancement or Career Development. Each committee takes on one project throughout the course of the year that will benefit the College.
