Stay connected and get involved with the Alumni Association and Columbia Nursing and join a comittee:

Recent Alumni Engagement Committee

The purpose of this committee is to deepen recent graduates’ involvement with Columbia Nursing, including events and initiatives that would drive engagement, and increase recent graduates’ participation in the Annual Fund.  We understand (and appreciate) that your time as a participant is valuable; this role is flexible—you can commit as little or as much time as our schedule allows.  View the various ways to get involved in the Recent Alumni Engagement Committee.
