President's Council

President's Council The President's Council recognizes important friends of the College who possess expertise on a wide range of topics. Members convene as a group 1-2 times each year and engage in high-level discussions with President Ainlay and his senior leadership team, faculty and students in small group settings. The Council has quickly become an invaluable resource for President Ainlay and campus leaders as they look to the Council as a sounding board on important themes and issues facing the College. Through their involvement, Council members also enjoy an "insider's view" of the College and are invited to "roll up their sleeves" and take part in programs that meet their individual interests while helping to advance the College's strategic priorities and strengthen ties to the greater Union community.

For more information about the President's Council, contact Debra Geer (, Director of College Initiatives.
