Alumni Board of Directors

All Cumberlands alumni are members of the Alumni Association and represented by the Alumni Board of Directors. This dedicated group of volunteers comes together with one goal in mind—the continued success of University of the Cumberlands.

Members of the board serve three-year terms beginning December 1. The Board should be representative of the diversity of the Alumni Association, with members who represent various class years, geographical areas and interests. Alumni Board members meet in Williamsburg three times per calendar year and attendance is expected at Homecoming and the Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame event.
