Much like the Engineering Advisory Board, the Engineering Alumni Chapter is designed to help advance the engineering school at the University of Mississippi and maintain programs of excellence and a posture of leadership in engineering education. However, the Engineering Alumni Chapter does not require a specific appointment or nomination. It is open to all University of Mississippi School of Engineering graduates and encourages participation at all levels.
The Engineering Alumni Chapter consists of a president, a vice president and a secretary, along with nine other members. These 12, in conjunction with the UM Alumni Association, the director of development and the dean of the School of Engineering, work to promote public relations pertaining to engineering and to promote communications between alumni, students, and the faculty of the School of Engineering. If you or someone you know is interested in serving in this capacity or just desires to know more about this area, please contact Director of Development Denson Hollis, with your inquiry.
