Our connection to Lafayette never ends. While all of us will be forever linked to the College, some are inspired to find ways to contribute their time and talent to enhance the community.

Our formal connection is through the Alumni Association, which includes all graduates of the College. Currently, more than 28,000 members live in all 50 states and 87 foreign countries. As president and president-elect, we invite you to read more about the association and explore the opportunities to connect and engage.

The Alumni Association promotes the welfare of Lafayette College by:

  1. encouraging each alumnus/alumna, as an individual, to assume a full measure of responsibility for the progress of the College,
  2. providing leadership and the means for alumni to unite in their efforts to support and strengthen the College,
  3. working closely with the Board of Trustees and the administration of the College to achieve unity of purpose and activity,
  4. disseminating information that will keep alumni well informed about the College and the association,
  5. establishing class and chapter organizations to efficiently carry out the objectives of the association,
  6. assisting in raising funds for the improvement of the College,
  7. encouraging qualified students to apply for admission to the College, and
  8. making recommendations through its officers to the Board of Trustees concerning matters essential to the welfare of the College.

The officers are the president, president-elect, secretary, and treasurer. The first two are elected by the association at its annual meeting. The executive director of Alumni Relations serves as secretary, and the treasurer of the College or designated person serves as treasurer.

The Alumni Council  is comprised of the officers and the members-at-large who usually serve as chairs of the association committees. The current committees are Admissions, Affinity Groups, Career Services, Chapters, Communications, International, Participation, and Young Alumni. Alumni Council elects members. If you are interested, please contact the current president or president-elect.
