The RAA Board has dramatically demonstrated its leadership and significance as an organization dedicated to the Institute’s future – with financial support of important campus projects, a concern for and dedication to today’s students and campus life, and a commitment to improving and adding value to the alumni network. They are the “voice” of Rensselaer’s nearly 100,000 alumni worldwide.

The RAA Board of Trustees consists of approximately 30 caring and involved student and alumni members who represent alumni interests to the Institute. They work closely with the Office of Alumni Relations in developing and implementing programs that are of interest and value to alumni, including networking, social, educational, and student-centered activities.

Do you know an outstanding alumnus/a who volunteers their time in support of Rensselaer? If you do, please considering nominating them for one of the Rensselaer Alumni Association’s (RAA) annual volunteer awards, which are designed to recognize our important alumni partners for the critical work they do. Nominees may be new to their role, or have been involved for many years, and may have served in any area of the Institute. Awards are presented each year at Reunion & Homecoming, which will take place this year October 12-15. A nominations form will be available in Spring 2018 for next year's awards.
