The Villanova University Alumni Association Board of Directors is a high-level, volunteer advisory group that serves as a liaison between the alumni community and the University—or “the voice of the alumni.” Through this lens, members provide counsel, knowledge, ideas and networks to the Office of Alumni Relations.
