Alumni Council Nominations

alumni council

The Alumni Council nominating committee welcomes all suggestions for candidates. The committee considers many factors in selecting new members, including geographic location, graduation year, and a demonstrated, ongoing interest in the College through volunteer service, participation in College-sponsored activities, and a consistent record of giving. Volunteer participation in other organizations is also of interest to the nominating committee.

To nominate a person for consideration, please send the following information to Lisa Shafer at Candidate's name, class year, and why you feel this person would be a good addition to the Alumni Council. (Nominations for the 2018-2019 academic year were due by October 2, 2017.)

Our slate of candidates for the Fall 2018 - Spring 2021 term are:

Joseph Becker '66 (PA), Geoff Cline '96 (NE), Robert Cushman '71 (TN), Petrina Dawson '76 (VA), Mike Dennis '93 (OR), Sampriti Ganguli '95 (VA), Christine Kim '17 (NY), Patricia Scholz-Cohen '85 (NH), Stephen Schwartz '84 (OH), Riana Shah '14 (CA), Kimberly St. Julian '12 (TX), and Sean Wright '96 (PA).

Click on their names above to learn more about them, and cast your vote by using the specialized link in the email you received. Votes are due in by Feb. 15, 2018.

Per the recently updated Swarthmore College Alumni Association Constitution, please vote to ratify this slate of 12 alumni.  Please note that this vote is not picking among the 12 -- each will join the Alumni Council if a majority of votes are "yes" for that specific person.  You can vote yes for all 12 (in fact, we hope to welcome all 12 on this slate to the Alumni Council this Fall).

For those without email on file with the College, a paper option has been offered.
