Ready to make an impact on our students and College while collaborating and networking with fellow nursing alumni?

The UMass Amherst Elaine Marieb College of Nursing Alumni Association is led by dedicated board members who work to advance and support alumni, students, and the College. All alumni are welcome to join the board and attend virtual meetings. We meet six times a year, traditionally on the first Monday of every month with the exception of Labor Day, from September - November and March - May.

What can you expect when you join the alumni board?

  • Dedicated group of alumni spanning multiple decades and programs from the Elaine Marieb College of Nursing
  • Opportunities for student mentorship
  • Strategy updates and Q&A with Dean Allison Vorderstrasse
  • Interact from faculty and students at the college to get a personal view and perspective
