Board members volunteer their time, talent and resources to assist in building an alumni-centered culture within the School. Board members each serve a term of three academic years (July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2024), and may be re-elected for a second three-year term. 

Applicants should be an SPH graduate or former student (at least 12 credits) or distinguished friend of the School, and upon selection are asked to become members of the University of Minnesota Alumni Association.
