Guiding Purpose of the Kellogg Alumni Council

The purpose of the Kellogg Alumni Council (KAC) is to serve as strategic partners and leaders in catalyzing our global alumni community – a network that vitally connects alumni to one another and the school throughout their lifetime.

KAC members are champions and ambassadors of Kellogg that strengthen and enrich our network by:

  • guiding and influencing the alumni engagement strategy by providing direction, feedback and critical resources;
  • creating strong networks in partnership with the School and fellow alumni leaders;
  • fostering a deep sense of affiliation and pride among alumni; and
  • helping build Kellogg's presence and reputation worldwide by serving as key extensions of the School.
