Mission and Board

Alumni Board Mission Statement
The Alumni Association Board of Directors is a group of actively engaged alumni who work to build a culture that benefits the alumni, students, faculty and supporters of Colorado Mesa University. The board provides guidance, education, and support to grow the awareness of the Alumni Association and involvement on campus, in our community, and around the country. 

Alumni Giving Resolution
The CMU Alumni Association's Board of Directors is committed to supporting the fundraising efforts of the University to benefit students and encourages others to join them.  Each year the Alumni Board commits to 100% giving participation and each director may designate their contribution as they wish - scholarships, capital projects, clubs and organizations, among many other options.  Alumni giving is instrumental to helping current and future Mavericks attain their educational dreams by earning a college degree as well as providing critical resources for our Alma Mater's continued success.
