Board of Directors

Under authority delegated by the University's Board of Trustees, the Alumni Association's 35-member Board of Directors sets priorities for Stanford's alumni relations and for ongoing interaction between alumni and the University.

Meeting quarterly (except during the summer) and working through a committee system, the board oversees the alumni association's administration and programs, monitors budgets and longer-term program plans, and approves goals for the division.

The board appoints its own chair and vice chair. Carol Benz serves as chair; Andrew Haden serves as vice chair. Howard E. Wolf, '80, vice president for alumni affairs and president of the Stanford Alumni Association, reports to President Tessier-Lavigne.

Under the general direction of the board, volunteer committees of the Alumni Association also identify eight alumni to serve on the 38-member Stanford Board of Trustees, and nominate for various awards students and faculty members who merit special recognition for volunteer service to the University.
