A Primer on the Dartmouth Alumni Council

If you’re a new member of the Dartmouth Alumni Council or a curious alum, the following information will help you get started.

Alumni Council Committees

Much of the Alumni Council’s work is accomplished through committees. Sometimes the work of a committee may include one or more non-members of the council from either the alumni body or some other source. For example, appropriate staff officers at the College can serve as committee liaisons to coordinate the work of groups and provide accurate information to committee members. Committee meetings are held between sessions of the council as required.

Communicating with Dartmouth

The Alumni Council is the official communications conduit between alumni and the College. If you’d like to convey your questions or comments to the College, contact your Council representative or the Alumni Liaison Committee.
