Lander Alumni Association

The Lander Alumni Association, formed in 1885, is celebrating over 100 years of service to the university and its alumni. The association is governed by a 30-member board of directors. The 2017-2018 Board President is Debrah Miller, Class of 1976. All graduates and former students who completed at least 30 semester hours at Lander are members of the association.

The purpose of the organization is to foster continued interest among alumni in their alma mater. Several activities are sponsored throughout the year by the Alumni Association, such as Homecoming/Alumni Weekend, Alumni Reunion Day and various receptions and alumni-sponsored trips. Also, the Alumni Association awards 14 academic scholarships and one athletic scholarship each year.
