What is the difference between Student Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Leaders Council?
The Student Alumni Association is open to all students and is meant to help connect students to the Rockhurst Alumni Association. There is no interview process to join and no mandatory meetings to attend.
The Student Alumni Leaders Council is made up of SAA members that are chosen during a selection process each spring to be the leadership body of the Student Alumni Association. In addition to planning SAA programs, SALC members serve as the official student representatives of the Rockhurst Alumni Association. SALC meets twice per month, and either sponsor or participate in several events throughout the year.
