Council Purpose

The purpose of the Alumni Advisory Council is to create mutually beneficial partnerships between Concordia St. Paul, its alumni and current students; and to promote the mission and promise of Concordia University, St. Paul.


We are excited to roll out the Alumni Advisory Council, which has been restructured in order to develop an organization that meets the continuously changing needs of our Alumni Association. We are currently looking to add members. Members can participate on the council committees via face to face or virtual interactions. To learn more about the new structure, please click the buttons below to read the new constitution and bylaws, general member position description and committee plans.

All appointed Alumni Advisory Council members are required to attend the kick-off meeting in late August of each year.

Applications for the Alumni Advisory Council are accepted year-round.  Accepted applicants will be appointed to the council in July of each year. Applications for the 2017-18 cycle are no longer being accepted - all applications received after Mar. 31, 2017 will be considered for the 2018-19 cycle.
