National Alumni Board

Quincy University’s National Alumni Board is comprised of 21 alumni representing different geographical regions of the nation. Assisted by the director of development and alumni services, the Alumni Board maintains and stimulates interest in the University, helps generate financial support, helps provide internships and mentoring opportunities for University students, and acts as a liaison between the University and its alumni.
