Alumni Board


The mission of the Alumni Board of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY is to support the mission of the school, encourage lifelong connections among alumni, connect and engage alumni in the life and financial health of the school, and advance the reputation of the school, its students and alumni.

The work of the board is primarily engagement, not policy-making, or governance. The Board divides into committees based upon what is perceived as the greatest need at the time.
