Alumni Leadership Group

Founding Alumni Advisory Committee

Comprised of leaders from a cross section of disciplines and interests, the College of Coastal Georgia Alumni Advisory Committee members provide valuable perspectives that inform the College's plans, strategies, program development and resource acquisition. Members are active advocates for the College in communicating the goals, achievements, aspirations, and opportunities to a range of external constituencies. The College of Coastal Georgia Alumni Advisory Committee consists of members of College of Coastal Georgia's alumni community (e.g. Brunswick Junior College, Brunswick College, and Coastal Georgia Community College) dedicated to helping continue the College's tradition of excellence.

Diversity is key to board success with members coming from a range of sectors and representing different points of view and experience. Members share a common commitment of improving the quality of the College of Coastal Georgia education and service programs.
