Taubman College

Board of Governors

Alumni/ae Society Board of Governors

Taubman College Alumni/ae Society Board of Governors convenes in Ann Arbor twice each year. They come from across the country at their own expense, dedicating several days to learn about current issues at the school and provide real world perspective. They involve themselves in program activities and interact with our students, helping them to prepare for jobs in the professions. In addition, our board provides generous financial support to the college.
