Are you a graduate of the University of Manitoba? Represent fellow graduates from your alma mater by serving on the Alumni Association Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Alumni Association supports the University in its mission to build a dynamic community of engaged alumni. The board works with the University to create mutually beneficial relationships between the University and its alumni in a way that encourages meaningful contributions of time, talent and resources and serves the objectives of both the University and its individual alumni. 

The Board of Directors is seeking alumni in the community who are actively involved in their networks, have an affiliation to the U of M and can influence their peer network to support the university’s strategic priorities. Adequate representation of our diverse pool of graduates is a primary focus which includes diversity amongst members in terms of faculty representation, gender and age.

Interested candidates are asked to contact Dustin O’Donnell in Alumni Relations by email or by phone at 204-474-9947 for more information. All individuals will be asked to submit a copy of their CV.
