Hispanic Alumni of SMU Board

Hispanic Alumni of SMU was established in 1997 as an affinity group that supplements the activities of the Office of Alumni Giving and Relations. The mission is to serve as the link between SMU Hispanic alumni and the SMU community, while promoting the Hispanic Alumni Scholarship.

Expectations of Board Members:

  • Board Meetings: Attend monthly Board Meetings 
  • Plan and Attend Events: Attend and help coordinate group networking events, and the Hispanic Alumni Awards Luncheon
  • Promote the Scholarship: encourage participation in the Hispanic Alumni Scholarship Fund
  • Select a Scholarship Recipient: Help select the annual recipient(s) of the Hispanic Alumni Scholarship
  • Make a gift to the Hispanic Alumni Scholarship Fund: As proponents of the Hispanic Alumni Scholarship, members of the Hispanic Alumni Board are expected to make a gift of any amount to the Scholarship each fiscal year. It’s not what you give, but that you give that matters most!

Time Commitment

  • Meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. Depending on the group’s upcoming event schedule, meetings are held either in person on SMU’s East Campus or by conference call.
  • The amount of time spent in this position will fluctuate; however, a member can expect to spend 1-5 hours a month on activities (less time between events and more time around events)
