To represent the interests of KGI’s alumni through discussions, KGI’s alumni advisory council will provide advice on an extensive range of matters of interest to alumni and support the strategic objectives of KGI.
An advisory council is a group of volunteers who come together in an official capacity to advise the staff of an organization. Many schools use advisory councils both to hear from the community about the organization’s direction while also keeping alumni and other supporters engaged and involved. An advisory council does not have legal responsibility or authority to make decisions. As the name implies, they are merely there to advise on decisions.
To promote and enhance the values and vision of our university through professional development, community service, networking, and philanthropy. To provide resources that contribute to students’ future success and foster a sense of community among people, programs, schools, and organizations affiliated with KGI.
To assist KGI in becoming an internationally recognized program of excellence in healthcare and the applied life sciences.
To continuously enhance visibility, value, and impact of KGI alumni to all alumni—present and future—and to the Institute and the KGI community.
Meet at least quarterly to discuss what is happening with KGI and the specific focus or direction the council needs. Calls may be scheduled in between meetings as needed.
Alumni are invited to join the AAC by the Alumni Engagement Officer. Each term will be two years. Pending an evaluation of the council at the end of those two years, the Alumni Advisory Council will consider transitioning to a full board.
There will be a minimum of seven and no more than 11 members on the Alumni Advisory Council.
