The Alumni Council governs The Johns Hopkins University Alumni Association and is responsible for the direction and management of the Alumni Association.
The Alumni Council advises the university on alumni affairs; develops programs to strengthen alumni connections with the university; develops networking opportunities for both alumni and current students; and helps prepare current students for their roles as alumni, encouraging them to stay involved with Johns Hopkins long beyond commencement.
The Council includes approximately 100 voting members and eight student representatives, one from each division of the University. Present and past University Alumni Trustees and young Trustees and the University's Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations are ex-officio members and ex-officio members emeriti. The full Council holds an annual meeting each October.
