The Alumni Advisory Board is always looking for new members!

Time. Talent. Treasure.

These are all the ways Eastern University alumni add to the community and overall experience of Eastern University. The Eastern University Alumni Advisory Board (EUAAB) is comprised of alumni volunteers looking to lead the alumni community into a deeper, more engaged and enriching experience with fellow alumni, current and prospective students, and the University. In partnership with the Office of Alumni Engagement, the EUAAB supports the Eastern community with efforts that not only benefit alumni, but also future generations of Eagles. The EUABB works to help create meaningful engagement experiences for our alumni. There are many existing and upcoming opportunities to support the EUABB efforts moving forward.

Community Service. Social Media & Marketing. Regional Events. Alumni Awards. EUAAB Recruitment.

These are just some of the teams we are looking to build via the EUAAB. Choose to volunteer on the projects you are most passionate about and help the alumni community grow together. Lend your gifts, talents, and expertise to the continued enhancement of the alumni experience.


In today’s day and age, it can be hard to set aside time for extra pursuits.  That’s why the EUAAB is committed to flexibility as a volunteer.  All meetings include a virtual component to allow you to join from wherever you may be. Also, by way of the aforementioned teams, you can donate your time and talents to a specific, finite project that you feel passionate about without becoming a full-time member of the EUAAB.


We want to ensure the EUABB reflects our diverse alumni base and current Eastern students. We want to offer diverse programming and need diverse representation to know what types of offerings would be valuable. Graduates representing our many degree programs, our traditional and non-traditional tracks, various class years, and the many different ethnicities of our students and alumni all contribute to our ability to demonstrate our commitment to diversity, equity, and belonging.
