Alumnae Council

Connecting St. Catherine graduates to one another and the University.

New Volunteer Program in 2019

Now through fall 2019, we are transitioning from the current Alumnae Council structure toward a volunteer program model designed to offer one-time, short-term, and ongoing volunteer options.

With this new program, we are excited to be able to offer greater access and engagement to alumni from each of our three colleges!
