Alumni Executive Council

The Alumni Executive Council (AEC) is the management arm of the Washington & Jefferson College Alumni Association, to which all alumni belong. Working with the Office of Alumni Relations, our 22 members advocate for alumni interests and implement priorities for alumni communications, programming, and services.

AEC members, who serve four-year terms, are nominated by fellow alumni, college faculty, and staff, or through self-nominations. To nominate yourself or a fellow alumnus, please complete a short nomination form

Through committees (governance, programming, and communications), the AEC works to accomplish two primary objectives: connecting alumni to one another and connecting alumni to students.
