Young Alumni Board

Vision

To develop and maintain the most dynamic and responsive young alumni organization in the country by establishing a shared sense of community among individuals whose ties to one another and to the Terry College of Business and the University of Georgia do not end with graduation.

Mission

Serve and support recent graduates of the Terry College of Business with programs and communications that are uniquely tailored to their own needs and perspectives; and promote and support the College’s programs and activities to cultivate and encourage a continuing affiliation among recent graduates and the institution.

Terry’s Young Alumni Board is comprised of 60 graduates from across the country who are 35 years old or younger. Founded in 2007, the board is charged with outreach and engagement to Terry’s young alumni community. The board’s mission is to develop initiatives that link students to alumni, foster a culture of giving, and support the college’s goal of excellence in education.

Initiatives

Second Century Club

As Terry College celebrates more than 100 years as a business school, the Second Century Club recognizes emerging philanthropists who earned their bachelors degree fewer than 12 years ago. These young alumni make a meaningful annual gift of at least $250 and are setting the standard for alumni of the next century.

TerryConnect

TerryConnect is your online platform for expanding and sharing your network with students and fellow alumni through discussion boards, affinity groups, virtual events, one-on-one connections, etc. Your engagement within the TerryConnect platform provides learning experiences for students outside the classroom and shapes their Terry experience.

10 for Terry

Join the movement and help the Young Alumni Board in their Signature Project, 10 for Terry. By signing up for a $10 monthly recurring gift to the Terry Excellence Fund, you can give back and have a positive impact on the opportunities and education of Terry students. While it's a small investment, you can make a significant impact!
