Alumni Board

Members of the CLA Alumni Board are champions for the College, using their creativity, dedication, and real world experiences to serve as volunteers and advocates for the College of Liberal Arts. The Board engages CLA alumni, students, faculty, and friends, and motivates them to think broadly. 

The activities and events hosted by the CLA Alumni Board are funded in part by the Purdue Alumni Association. For every CLA alumnus/a who becomes a PAA member, a portion of membership dues supports the CLA Alumni Board. Not a member? Become one today at purduealumni.org.
