Board of Directors

The Columbia College Alumni Association was founded in 1825 and has a rich history of engagement, leadership and influence at Columbia College.

The current Board of Directors advises the dean of the College, implements a variety of programs and initiatives and prioritizes the overarching activities of the CCAA to support the dean’s goal of 100 percent alumni engagement. Members are elected after showing a track record of volunteer activity and span decades, regions and interests. For more information on the CCAA board, contact us. You can also explore leadership roles with Columbia College Women (CCW) or Columbia College Young Alumni (CCYA).
