ESU Alumni Association

Board of Directors

ESU Alumni Association Board members are advocates of ESU and use their talents to plan special events and programs for alumni, recruit new students, promote fundraising, interact with Kansas legislators, and serve as voices for the 60,000-plus alumni they represent.

Board members serve one three-year term and may be re-elected for a consecutive term. Board meetings traditionally are held in February, June, and September.
