The Alumni Association of Princeton University
With 95,000+ members found in 155 countries and in all 50 states, the Alumni Association of Princeton University encourages and provides opportunities for lifelong engagement with the University and its robust alumni community.
The governing body of the Alumni Association, the Alumni Council of Princeton University engages alumni in the life of the University in mutually beneficial ways.
The Alumni Council is led by the Executive Committee, which also oversees Council Committees responsible for developing and promoting new programs for alumni to connect with each other and with the University.
Council members include presidents of each of the alumni classes; the presidents of each regional association or club across the world and the president of the Princeton Club of New York; the officers of the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni; members of the Executive Committee; and up to a total of 12 appointed term members. In addition, life members of the Council include all former chairs of the Council, presidents emeriti of Princeton and former directors of the Council.
Thousands of alumni volunteers work on various committees to engage as many alumni as possible in the life of the University and to serve Princeton alumni across the country and around the world.
The Alumni Council has a number of special standing committees and ad hoc committees that conduct the business of the Council.
Young Alumni Trustees: Eligibility, Election, Results
The Young Alumni Trustee position was created in 1969 to ensure that the University’s Board of Trustess would always include four members with recent experience as undergraduates. Young Alumni Trustees have the same rights, powers and duties as all other trustees and take the same oath to “faithfully, impartially and justly” perform the duties of the office of trustee.
