The Alumni Board serves as an extension of the FIU Alumni Association and is the College's external voice. Members act as ambassadors for the College, sharing their values, support and strengths to provide direction to move the organization forward.

Guided by the College’s strategic priorities, members of the Alumni Board are vital partners who, through their involvement, create a culture of pride and strong loyalty by communicating the vision and mission of the College of Business and its alumni efforts to fellow alumni and the community.

The Circle focuses on three strategic areas: Engagement, Service and Development.

Engagement: Support the College’s alumni and community engagement efforts through signature events such as the Hall of Fame, Homecoming, PAW Week, and the College’s Alumni Chapter and Affinity Council events.

Service: Participate and promote programs such as the College's Mentor Program, assist with student recruitment, placement, and hosting corporate tours.

Development: Garnering financial support for the College through the Annual Fund Campaign, and promoting sponsorship of the College's programs.
