New HUB Alumni Board

For many years, we have wanted to build an alumni leadership group comprised of past members of ASUW and GPSS. Well, we are finally underway with that goal. While the HUB Alumni Board currently consists of former ASUW leaders from the 1960s to early 2010s, we hope to eventually expand it to include other former leaders, such as GPSS officers and Student Regents.

The newly formed HUB Alumni Board met for the first time last summer and then again in October. The goals of the group are to help the HUB brainstorm big and aspirational ideas about programs and services, leverage relationships with other alumni, gather remembrances and stories from the past, and determine fundraising strategies. The October meeting was a tremendous evening of friendships, connections, and candid conversations about supporting student leaders on campus. Board members expressed that the HUB provided a valuable and caring support system for them while they were students and the group wants to help ensure that the HUB continues this work, not only for student government leaders, but also for students in a diverse array of clubs and organizations. The meeting included a discussion about future fundraising ideas that could build upon and support current student leadership at the UW.
