College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences
Alumni Advisory Board
The mission statement of the CLAHS Alumni Advisory Board is to assist in connecting and communicating with its alumni and those who value the programs and outreach activities. This past fall a new set of by-laws were written and proved to usher in a new and exciting era. Each board member must be involved in at least one committee, thus making sure that he members are actively participating in the College’s activities. The Board meets twice a year with a formal meeting, and at times the individual committees will meet as needed throughout the year. Traditionally, there is a fall meeting the same weekend as the College Homecoming and then a spring meeting in April.

|The current president of the board, Chrissy Jenkins, states “I am thrilled to be able to serve the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences in this capacity. It feels great to be able to give something back to a University that gave me so much. I look forward to seeing CLAHS alumni of all ages become involved in increasing numbers. The Board will work to continue to recognize and promote the achievements of the many talented CLAHS students, faculty members and alumni.” Jerome A. Niles, Dean said “One of the unanticipated benefi ts of the merger between the Liberal Arts and Human Sciences and Education has been the creation of a new family of over 40,000 alums and the newly reconstituted College Advisory Board. I believe our Alumni Advisory Board has played an essential role in getting our alumni on board with the merger. Their energy, enthusiasm and creative ideas in starting new traditions have have been invaluable assets in our attempts to establish a new college identity, increase visibility and connect with as many members as possible in our alumni base.” For more information, visit CLAHS online at www.clahs.vt.edu/alumni.|
