Mission

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.

Programming

  • 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.

Structure

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.
