Alumni Council

Your Alumni Council is committed to nurturing and strengthening a vibrant, lifelong relationship between PNCA alumni and between alumni and the College.

The Alumni Council is a representative body of approximately 15 PNCA alumni volunteers with broad and diverse experience who are invested in supporting PNCA alumni. Our primary work involves strengthening a sense of alumni identity, camaraderie, and pride by funding projects and events that foster strong connections between PNCA alumni and between alumni and the College. This includes exploring ways that PNCA can continue to support alumni personally, professionally, and creatively. We hope our work encourages alumni and the College to see each other as partners in PNCA’s educational mission.

Please email alumni@pnca.edu if you are interested in learning more, getting involved with the PNCA Alumni Council, or proposing an alumni project.
