About the Board

Mission & Goals:

The mission of the SFIS Alumni Association Board is to foster closer relationships and understanding between alumni and the school at large through communication and an environment of fellowship, social, and collegial connections.

Consistent with the School’s core values of access, excellence, and impact, the SFIS Alumni programs and services aim to achieve this mission by:

  • Representing the interests of the alumni body by gathering a voice for alumni and facilitating communication with the school’s leadership.
  • Provide networking and mentoring opportunities  to enhance their lives and careers and opportunities for supporting current students with their careers.
  • Encourage active alumni participation in the SFIS community, to attend events, to volunteer, to create new ways for alumni to stay connected and contribute to advancing the school.
  • Creating a worldwide community among the alumni body and facilitating opportunities for lifelong engagement with the educational, research, and philanthropic activities of the school.
  • Creating a culture of philanthropy among the alumni body, to ensure that alumni continue to contribute their time, talent and financial resources to the betterment of the university
