Nine alumni candidates, 47 votes, and a new alumni council for the 2020/2021 term.

This year, the new year also brings a new Alumni Council at AAU. The election procedure reminded us just how engaged our alumni are with 9 excellent candidates and a high volume of votes casted from within our Alumni Community.  

AAU’s Alumni Council serves as an autonomous representative body for the Alumni Community to guide and further promote lifelong, symbiotic relationships between the university and our alumni, because we strongly believe we still have a lot to offer each other even after graduation.

Alumni Council is made up of 5 alumni who are elected by the Alumni Community for a 2 year term to represent alumni interests and help shape the development of our university and the alumni community.
