Alumni Board

ISE Alumni Board 2020

They’re the elite of ISE graduates. They’re successful in industries and universities all over the world. They’ve eaten at Garcia’s Pizza. They remember the boneyard in its original glory. Many of them have even seen REO Speedwagon live as a small club band.

They’re the ISE Alumni Board, and they are the department’s guiding light.

The ISE Alumni Advisory Board is a group of ISE alums who want to stay connected to the Department and help make it even stronger. The 20-member Board meets twice a year on campus to learn about Department status, programs and plans, and to provide feedback and support. Appointed members are asked to serve for a four-year term, and are encouraged to participate in one of the three standing committees. Past activities include mixers, networking events, resume and interview skills coaching for students, and lectures to scheduled ISE classes in targeted areas of practice.

The ISE Alumni Advisory Board provided the seed fund for the ISE Visionary Scholarship.


Student Recruitment and Retention – plans activities that enrich the ISE student experience
Alumni Relations – organizes outreach activities to help ISE alums stay in touch
Business Perspectives – serves as a resource for the Department to hear from ISE alums and leverage their experience
