Board of Directors

The Alumni Board is comprised of a diverse group of graduates who meet quarterly to promote the interests of Dominican University of California. The Board’s mission is to establish and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship between the University and alumni.

Please complete the Alumni Board of Directors Peer Nomination Form if you wish to nominate a fellow Dominican graduate for the board. Candidates will then be asked to complete a separate application if they are interested in representing the Alumni Association. 

Alumni Board roles and responsibilities include: 

  • Using your energy, initiative, expertise, and creativity to represent more than 17,000 alumni from a variety of degree programs and encouraging their engagement in the Dominican community
  • Supporting the University as a goodwill ambassador
  • Giving to the Annual Fund and supporting special university campaigns
  • Actively participating in one Task Force to enhance the Dominican alumni experience
  • Attending each of the scheduled board meetings (fall, winter, spring, and summer) and an annual one-day retreat
  • Participating in at least four alumni events during the year, with special emphasis on Reunion and Christmas activities

When I think of Dominican I think of an inclusive community that shaped me into the person I am today. With the Dominican values of study, reflection, community, and service there is no better way to embody these values than volunteering and giving back to others. I truly believe in paying it forward so future generations of Dominican students can be proud of their alumni family." — Gigi Gillard ’06, MBA ’07
