Join the Augustana GOLD Council!

GOLD Council

The Augustana College GOLD Council is a group of graduates of the last decade whose focus is to engage and cultivate relationships with other young alumni on behalf of the college. 

Members come from an array of backgrounds, majors and graduation years. Their varied perspectives allow the council to strengthen relationships with all alumni.

GOLD Council members meet several times a year to discuss initiatives that help Augustana stay connected to its young alumni through exclusive programming.

Members also receive special access to many of Augustana’s alumni events and various networking opportunities.

The application for the council is rolling, and alumni graduating from 2011-2021 are invited to apply for the council at any time.
