Alumni Association Board of Directors


The Alumni Association Board of Directors is driven by pride in UW Oshkosh’s successes and the accomplishments of our students. The 24-member volunteer board works to build connections among alumni, students and the University.

Board of Directors meetings are held on campus, and Board membership is open to all members of the Alumni Association who are excited about the University’s past, present and future. All candidates are elected through a nomination process, with members serving three-year terms.

2020-2021 Alumni Association Board meetings: Aug. 6, Sept. 15, Oct. 13, Dec. 2, Jan. 21, March 23 and April 28.
