The Catholic University of America Alumni Association is seeking to fill at-large positions on our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors builds Cardinal pride, shares good news about CatholicU, encourages prospective students, and serves the University in a variety of other ways. New members will play a crucial role in fostering connections among alumni, current students, and the greater Catholic University community.

An individual interested in joining the Board of Directors may be self-nominated or nominated by a third party. We encourage interested alumni to apply via our online form.

Each nomination should be completed on or before February 1, 2024. Forms that are not completed in full prior to the deadline will not be eligible for consideration by the Nominations Committee.

The Nominations Committee will report a slate of candidates to the Board of Directors as soon as reasonably possible after its work is completed. All candidates will be notified of whether or not they have been selected by the Nominating Committee to stand for election.
