Zag Alumni and Friends of Color Logo


The Alumni of Color Community serves Gonzaga’s self-identified diverse alumni and seeks to intentionally connect alumni and students of color through educational, social, and professional development, and philanthropic programming rooted in values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.


  • Connect alumni of color with each other and with the university to provide affinity group feedback and input on engagement efforts.
  • Connect alumni to students and each other for mentoring and career development.
  • Partner with the Office of Admissions and Recruitment to assist with increasing the volunteer participation by alumni of color in addition to connecting prospective students of color with diverse alumni.
  • Support campus-partner programs and activities by sponsoring and/or participating in annual events to connect current students to Gonzaga’s programs and opportunities through UMEC, Cultural Clubs, etc.
  • Endow multiple funds supporting identity-based scholarships.


The Alumni of Color’s leadership team is rooted in equity and is not a traditional hierarchical structure. This community is intentionally collaborative, and while one individual may be the point leader of a certain area, there is no hegemony.
