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 event.

The Nevada Alumni Council is the volunteer governing body of the Nevada Alumni Association. The council is comprised of 27 alumni volunteers. 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.

Would you like to be part of your Alumni Association? Nominations are due by August 1 of each year and are presented to the full council for approval during the annual Homecoming meeting. Please call our office to request a nomination form at (775) 784-6620 or toll free 888-NV-ALUMS.
