Student Engagement
The College of ACES Alumni Association continues to want to increase awareness of the ACES Alumni Association among the ACES student body and facilitate engagement throughout a student’s academic experience.  The ACES Alumni Board will investigate an alumni family program to bring alumni and youth to campus to learn more about the College of ACES.  The board also plans to continue engagement with the ACES Student Advancement Committee and other students to increase the awareness of the Alumni Association.  The board will also investigate options for establishing an ACES Alumni Association scholarship, likely one award from each alumni district for students.
