Alumni Spirit

Alumni Council

The Alumni Council of Baldwin Wallace University is the Executive Board of the BW Alumni Association. The Alumni Council includes the officers of the Alumni Association, Council-at-Large members, presidents of alumni organizations who serve ex officio and past presidents of the Alumni Association who are lifetime members. Members of the Alumni Council typically serve a term of three years.

The mission of the Alumni Council is to represent the interests of BW alumni and to serve as informed ambassadors for the University. The Alumni Council meets on campus two times per year. The Council also selects each year’s recipients of the Alumni Merit Award and the Family Heritage Award. Members are expected to attend alumni events on and off-campus as their schedule permits.

To learn more about serving on the Alumni Council, contact director of alumni engagement Terry Kurtz ’91 at (440) 826-3170 or email tkurtz@bw.edu.
