ACEL Alumni Board Members

The ACEL Alumni Board operates from three pillars of programming, connecting alumni to alumni, recognizing alumni and connecting alumnit to students.

Twelve alumni make up the board with three from each discipline and three at-large members. Four student respresentatives sit on the board, as well as three staff members from the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership who serve as ex-officio members.

The ACEL Alumni Board is always seeking alumni from all majors and graduation years to get involved. Learn more about how you can join the ACEL Alumni Board here.
