Build and nurture an enduring community that inspires volunteerism and promotes philanthropy.



Alumni Council Purposes

  1. to assist the College Administration and Board of Trustees in the furtherance of the strategic plan and other administrative objectives;
  2. to provide a liaison between alumni of Westminster College (the “College”) and the College, including trustees, faculty, administration, and students, by communicating to alumni knowledge of the College and its various activities and reflecting the sentiment of alumni on matters affecting the College;
  3. to encourage financial support, moral, spiritual, and economic growth for the continued strengthening of the College;
  4. to provide a resource of volunteers whose aim is to assist the College in its academic, cultural, extra-curricular, spiritual, and economic growth;
  5. and to foster and further friendship among alumni and to provide opportunities for alumni service and education.
