Alumni Association Boards
The Alumni Association has board positions available on the Alumni Association Board, the College of Law Board, and the Young Alumni Pack Board. If you are interested in applying for a board position please complete the online application. Application are considered in the spring semester.  If you would like more information please visit online or contact alumni@loyno.edu.  

Career Mentoring
The Career Mentoring committee leverages the Alumni Association to support the professional development of Loyola students.  The committee shall identify and define professional development strategies, tactics and metrics in collaboration with the Career Development Center and serve as the key informant and stakeholder alumni group for the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Career Development Center. The key tasks of the committee are to identify and define ways in which alumni can support students’ exploration of career paths; share best practices from life experiences; and review offerings from Loyola and offer suggestions.

Chapter Volunteers
Alumni chapter volunteers are involved in planning and logistics for alumni events in their city. They assist the Chapter President in planning annual or smaller scale re-occurring events (i.e. happy hours, crawfish boils, Christmas events, Mardi Gras events, etc.) on behalf of the Alumni Chapter. Chapter volunteers will work closely with fellow chapter volunteer leaders and the Office of Alumni Engagement staff to coordinate publicity and logistics for events.  

Loyola Loyal
The Loyola Loyal Committee is focused on increasing alumni participation in annual giving.  The committee members work to assist alumni engagement staff in the planning and execution of Loyola Loyal Day (Loyola’s Day of Giving), held in April. Members of the Loyola Loyal committee will also assist with peer-to-peer fundraising and solicitation, particularly near the end of the calendar year in November/December and the end of the fiscal year in June/July. There are many ways you can be Loyola Loyal. For more information, click here.

Membership and Outreach
The Membership committee works to ensure that alumni feel welcome and included at local events sponsored by the Alumni Association and/or the University. The committee also works to grow the board applicant pool and increase the number of alumni participating in the various boards and committees that comprise the Alumni Association. This committee will not meet during the year, instead committee members are asked to attend Alumni Association or University events as often as possible and may be asked to make brief remarks on behalf of the Alumni Association when appropriate.

Reunion/Affinity
Whether celebrating a milestone class reunion or gather by a special-interest, affinity, or constituent society, we encourage graduates to form a committee with the assistance of the Office of Alumni Engagement. Alumni celebrating a milestone year are in their 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, or 60th year as a Loyola graduate.  If you graduated in one of these years, please sign up to serve on the committee.  The success of the reunions is a direct result of the strength of the planning committees.

Scholarship
The Alumni Association gives out two types of financial awards- a legacy scholarship and a graduation award.  Responsibilities of this committee include: attending committee meetings; reviewing current scholarship criteria, reviewing application materials, interviewing candidates, and identifying and selecting recipients. The scholarship committee will meet once in the fall semester to determine the recipients of the graduation award and twice in the spring semester to determine the recipients of the legacy scholarship.

Community Service
As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Loyola promotes educating and graduating “men and women for others.”  Alumni are invited to get involved with service opportunities in their communities. A great resource to search for upcoming service events is the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU). Many Jesuit schools open up service opportunities going on around the country to all Jesuit educated alumni. We also encourage you to serve during Loyola National Day of Service, Wolves on the Prowl, held in November.
