Council members work to strengthen the relationship between HGSE and its alumni through engagement and outreach, including event development and support, Admissions recruitment, strengthening volunteer opportunities, and broadening alumni networks. Council members serve as both representatives of the larger alumni body and as sources of information for the Office of Alumni Engagement.
Each year, the Alumni Council selects Alumni Council Award recipients, based on nominations from the HGSE alumni community.
