Recent Alumni Council

Mission and History

Members of the Bowling Green State University Recent Alumni Council (BGSU RAC) serve as ambassadors for BGSU and the BGSU Alumni Office to the all alumni, friends, family and members of the BGSU community. The Recent Alumni Council, previously known as the Young Alumni Council, advocates for the interests of recent alumni and fosters relationships between the University and recent alumni. Recent alumni is a term used to describe those alumni who have graduated within the past 0-10 years.


The RAC was founded in 2011 by a group of dynamic and highly involved recent alumni with the following objectives:

  • Serve as ambassadors for BGSU
    • Actively represent and promote the University in their own local communities
    • Educate and interact with current students and recent alumni about goals, purposes, projects, and services of the Alumni Office
  • Advocate for the interests of recent alumni
    • Promote the social, professional, philanthropic, and service interests and goals of recent alumni
    • Communicate ideas and feedback from alumni and friends to the Alumni Office
  • Foster relationships between BGSU and recent alumni
    • Cultivate lifelong participation in and philanthropic support of BGSU
    • Facilitate and support implementation of relevant and meaningful programs and services for current and future young alumni throughout the country
