Young Alumni Advisory Council

Providing key insight on engagement and fundraising.

In 2019, the LSU Alumni Association announced the first ever Young Alumni Advisory Council. The association established this council to improve engagement with this unique group and to help guide future initiatives as a result of its strategic plan.

The council seeks to best represent the LSU young alumni population, therefore members represent cities both in Louisiana and across the United States as well as a wide range of industries. Members meet four times a year, three times via conference call and one time in person. The council serves as a streamlined focus group to provide key insight and feedback on engagement, development, and fundraising. Members have the opportunity to connect back with their alma mater and network with fellow alumni, while also working to better support young and future alumni to build increased and enhanced connections to each other and to the University.
