About

The mission of the Nevada Alumni Association is to foster and cultivate a common bond of pride, affinity and connection among alumni, students, prospective students and friends of the University of Nevada, Reno through quality programs, services and events.

The Nevada Alumni Council is the volunteer governing body of the Nevada Alumni Association. The president of the Associated Students of the University of Nevada, president of the Graduate Student Association, Athletics Director, Chairman of the Foundation Board of Trustees or his/her representative, and Vice President of Development & Alumni Relations serve as ex-officio members of the Council (*).

Each Alumni Council member is eligible to serve three consecutive two-year terms. Nevada Alumni Council members are required to be dues-paying members of the Nevada Alumni Association, participate on one of four priority task forces (Programming, Membership and Chapters or Young Alumni and Student Engagement) as well as sign the Member Partnership Agreement.

If you’re interested in joining the Nevada Alumni Council or would like to nominate someone, please submit an online nomination form. New members are selected in May and October of each year.
