Committees

July 1, 2019 is the start of a new Council year.
The following are standing and ad hoc committees of the Alumni Association, in accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws. Committee membership is open to all alumni though chairs must be members of the Alumni Council. Support for each committee from the Alumni Office staff is indicated. Many alumni volunteer their time on one or more committees. It’s also a great way to stay involved with Cooper Union, while having a lot of fun!

If you are interested in joining a CUAA Committee, please see that committee’s page and feel free to contact them directly, or let us know you are interested in a number of volunteering possibilities, beyond just committees.
