Human Ecology Alumni Association

Human Ecology Alumni Association (HEAA)

The value of the HEAA is rooted in the relationships alumni form with each other and with the College.  In an environment where alumni support one another and support the priorities of the College, the value of the network increased for all.  Membership in the association is free and automatically granted to all graduates of the College. 


The board is the representative body of the College’s alumni network.  As ambassadors, they represent the interests of all Human Ecology alumni to the College.  The board’s mission is to assist in maintaining the lifelong relationship between the College and its alumni members worldwide.

The Board's goal is to foster a mutually beneficial relationship among the College, its students and its worldwide alumni network by leveraging the rich talents and many resources of the greater alumni community by enhancing awareness of the College and fostering increased attention to the College’s strategic priorities.  The HEAA Board supports students through the HEAA Grants Program.

Applications for board positions may be submitted beginning in March 2015.  Questions? Contact Terri Jackson, Assistant Director, Human Ecology Alumni Affairs & Development or 607-255-2061.
