Board of Directors Philosophy and Profile for Membership
The mission of the UC Santa Barbara Alumni Association is to serve and involve UC Santa Barbara alumni and students; to enlist alumni talents in the preservation and promotion of UC Santa Barbara's image, tradition, pride and status as a world class university.
At a minimum, Board members are expected to attend all fall, winter and spring Board meetings, participate in their committee meetings, support regional events; take the initiative to remain current on the association's services, programs, and issues; be an advocate for the Campus and the University of California; cover all their own expenses and help provide or obtain financial support for the Association and review board book materials prior to the meetings.
An effective Board member is passionate about the advancement of UC Santa Barbara, and enthusiastically uses his or her talents to serve as an ambassador for the Association, the Campus and the University of California.
As the needs of California, UC Santa Barbara and the Alumni Association evolve, so shall the composition of The Board. In order to select a diverse cross section of alumni, the Nominations Committee takes into consideration the populations we serve as well as geographical area of residence, year of graduation, occupation, professional skills and volunteer activities. Board members will be recruited to reflect these criteria.
Board members should also expect to be evaluated prior to consideration for term renewal.
