Board of Directors
A Board of Directors, consisting of 4 officers, 24 directors, members at-large and the immediate past president, manages the UDAA. Three men and three women are selected annually to serve four-year terms.
New members begin their term on July 1 each year. The deadline for nominations is in March each year.
The Association is a separate entity from the University of Delaware and is completely self-funded. As a result, the Association relies on support from alumni to generate the income provided through their affinity partnerships. The income from these partnerships is used to fund all of its alumni programs, student scholarships, and awards programs.
The Office of Development and Alumni Relations serves as the daily working arm of the association, executing the strategies of the Board of Directors, as well as annual programming and outreach.
The committees of the board are: Alumni Outreach, Awards, Executive, Finance and Nominating. Board members serve on at least one committee.
