The Recent Graduate Council is two-year volunteer commitment on an advisory board, open to anyone who has graduated from VCU in the past 10 years. Applications for council openings are accepted each spring. Members represent some of the best and brightest alumni of the past decade, and they help develop and implement engagement strategies to help their peers connect with one another, and the university, in new and exciting ways.
