The Catholic University of America Alumni Association is seeking to fill at-large positions on our Board of Directors. These new members will help foster connections among alumni, current students, and the greater Catholic University community. The Board of Directors serves the University in a wide range of ways, including building Cardinal pride, sharing good news about the University, and encouraging prospective students to select Catholic University.

As the board represents our broader alumni community, we encourage nominations from all ethnicities, genders, graduation years, geographic regions, degrees, and industries.

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

Each nomination should be completed on or before February 15, 2023. 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.
