The Alumni Alliance is a coalition of the leaders of affinity groups, defined by a unifying interest or purpose (excluding geography and class year). The mission of the Alliance is to collaborate, educate, and network among each groups’s members so in turn they can assist the College to advance the vision and priorities of its leadership.
To be considered for Alliance membership, affinity groups must: (a) establish a partnership between Washington College alumni, current students, and a sponsoring office, department, program, or organization; (b) have identified leadership; (c) have outlined a plan for connecting alumni to the campus community at least annually, through communication and/or event planning.
The Alliance is an important committee of the Alumni Board. The overarching goals for the program are to:
- Steward existing WC affinity groups to leverage communication channels;
- Cultivate emerging alumni affinity groups for future strategic purposes;
- Identify potential Alumni Board members and other volunteers.
