Alumni Engagement Council

Palo Alto University's Alumni Engagement Council exists to serve as a liaison for, and to, the PAU alumni community. This Council holds an important role in offering guidance to the university regarding its alumni engagement efforts, including programming, communications, and benefits. The member nomination process is currently open for our inaugural Council membership. 

In alignment with the university’s mission, vision, and values, the Council membership aims for an inclusive membership across a spectrum of individual and professional identities. Members must be alumni from a degree-granting program of Palo Alto University of Pacific Graduate School of Psychology who are willing to participate in meetings and engagement activities, such as attending and/or hosting programming, and assist in efforts to increase attendance and overall engagement.

We hope you will take the time to nominate alumni, including yourself, who are committed to seeing the university and its communities thrive. For more information about the Alumni Engagement Council, please visit the Charter
