AAG

From the Alumni Advisory Group

The mission of the Alumni Advisory Group (AAG), established at the invitation of President Jonathan Lash, is to support the mission, values, and philosophy of Hampshire College by building alumni engagement, supporting the College in attaining its fund-raising goals, and acting as ambassadors for the College. The AAG works to establish, maintain, and build mutually beneficial and lifelong connections among alums, and in so doing strengthens alumni leadership as a College resource.

Ellen Sturgis 77F chairs the group, which currently numbers 14 with the director of Alumni and Family Relations (AFR) ex-officio. Each of the 14 members belongs to at least one subcommittee.

Mike Ubell 70F chairs the subcommittee on nominations, which considers the composition of the AAG and its subcommittees.

Tanya Gallo 87F chairs the events subcommittee, which works with AFR to encourage great alum events worldwide.

Dan Gregor 93F chairs the communications subcommittee, which reaches out to alums and advises AFR on media and messaging.

The AAG is interested in alums who would like to serve on any one of the subcommittees. To find out more, please email alumni@hampshire.edu, subject line: AAG
