Young Alumni Council Applications

As a result of the recent Alumni Attitude Study, a priority of the Auburn Alumni Association is to create a young alumni council to be formed next Spring. The council will be comprised of 25 members representing a variety of colleges/schools, graduation years and geographic locations and whose primary mission will be to support the goals and mission of the Auburn Alumni Association specifically on matters pertaining to young alumni. The association defines a young alumni as an Auburn University graduate who is 40 years old or younger.

The application for the inaugural class has now closed.
