Alumni Association Board of Directors

The dental school Alumni Association Board of Directors has a mission reflecting the ways alumni can make a real and immediate impact upon the success of our dental school. Its goal is to help the dental school achieve its mission by promoting the welfare and advancement of the objectives of the school and Case Western Reserve University and to encourage the interest of alumni in the school and the university. As the Board continues its work in the key areas of the Alumni Association's mission, your talents and participation will be called upon.

The mission of the Alumni Association Board of Directors is tremendously important to the success of our students and the future of our school. Our mission:

  • Develop diverse activities for alumni and other appropriate constituencies that will promote the school, the university, and its people, as well as its programs
  • Identify, cultivate, and involve increasing numbers of alumni in those activities
  • Stimulate the professional growth of alumni through symposiums, seminars, and publications along with activities
  • Develop a broader, deeper level of economic support of the school
  • Contribute financially to the school on an annual basis
  • Publicize and promote the accomplishments of the school and its faculty, students, staff, alumni and special friends
  • Cooperate with the university alumni association as well as other schools in the university

The Alumni Association Board of Directors welcomes your involvement as a member. You’ll have the opportunity to network, renew old acquaintances and make new ones, and to impact the lives of the students. The Alumni Association presents awards to alumni and friends and sponsors student and alumni events. As a member of the Board of Directors, you have the opportunity to leave your mark on all of this!
