The Alumni Association Board of Directors represents alumni interests and initiatives to the College, students, and faculty/staff. The Board meets twice per year on campus and consists of alumni, student and staff representatives.

As agreed upon by the Alumni Association Board of Directors at the spring 2006 meeting, there shall be three (3) committees of the Board. These committees — the Ripon Person Committee, the Advancement Committee and the College Operations Committee — were designed to align with existing Board of Trustees committees and minimize overlap in alumni programs.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Association is to cultivate a lifelong partnership between Ripon College and Ripon College alumni, to empower membership growth and to provide support and assistant to the College.
