A&S Board Opportunities

College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Advisory Board

The role of the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Advisory Board is to advise the Dean of the College and his senior academic and administrative leadership on matters including operations and programs, alumni and community relations, and private support, to embrace the mission and vision of the College, and to serve as informed advocates and ambassadors. Members do not have to be alumni of the College, but are asked to provide annual financial support to the College, preferably at the McMicken Society Club level, and to demonstrate a meaningful level of participation and attendance at bi-annual meetings of the board or its committees, as well as at College events.

Please use the form below to nominate an alumnus who you feel is uniquely qualified to fulfill the expectations outlined above. Self-nominations are welcome.

*Note: Members located outside of the Greater Cincinnati region are responsible for travel costs associated with meetings and activities of the board.

A&S Alumni Activity Board

Caring deeply about something often means getting directly involved. That opportunity is available for A&S grads who want to ensure the success of their college.

The College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Activity Board was established March 6 when a group of dedicated volunteers held its inaugural meeting. This board, which includes four committees, was formed to serve the College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Network in the development and planning of meaningful programming for A&S alumni across a variety of interest areas. It also provides opportunities for alumni to become involved with the alumni network in many different capacities.

The board’s four committees — Community Engagement, Professional Development, Social Activities, and Student Engagement — are managed by officers of the board and are open to all A&S alumni. Each committee has its own goals and objectives that are set by the board. Learn More.

Apply to be on the board or a committee:

Apply for the board if you are willing to attend three out of the four required meetings per year and are looking for more responsibility and involvement with programming. Board members commit to a three year, renewable term. Applications are due by May 31 each year.

Apply for a committee if you have a more specific programming interest and are looking for a more casual volunteer commitment. All committees report to the activity board. If you decide to become more involved later on, you may apply to be on the board before the start of a new term. Applications for committees are accepted on a rolling basis.
