Board of Visitors

The Department of History Board of Visitors volunteers its time, performing three critical functions for the Department. First, the Board facilitates career, internship, and other professional opportunities for History majors. Second, the Board provides an external relations and advocacy network for the department, promoting the Department’s cutting-edge research and award-winning teaching in cities across the country. Finally, the Board supports the Department’s development and fundraising initiatives. Board members, who serve three-year terms, are History alumni who have excelled in a wide variety of careers and life pursuits. Together, our goal is to expand our intellectual community, inviting alums back into the fold and generating new excitement around the work of History.
