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.
