Alumni Association Board of Directors

This special group of alumni visit campus twice a year for a board meeting to discuss ideas and offer advice for alumni programming, events, and more. The board consists of members representing different geographical areas – mostly in the Midwest with some members living in more distant states. We are thankful for their time spent volunteering on the board and the excellent ideas they bring back to their alma mater! Once a Gorilla, Always a Gorilla!

Interested in serving on the Alumni Association Board of Directors?

A potential board member must be nominated by a Pittsburg State University staff, faculty, or current board member. Your name is then added to a list.
