Alumnae, together with the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumnae Relations team, support a variety of formal and informal ways to strengthen the connection among alumnae and with the College.  


Alumnae Association Board

The Alumnae Association Board’s vision is to develop and support lifelong connections among alumnae and students and to inspire and strengthen their commitment to Stephens College. 

The Advancement and Alumnae Relations staff meet regularly with the Alumnae Association Board to advance the highest priorities of the College. They work together to encourage alumnae to:  





Alumnae Network + Clubs

The Stephens network of alumnae is national and global in scope. Alumnae work and lead in every industry. Today’s students, recent graduates and alumnae have a shared stake in each other’s success.   

  • There are formal and informal networks of alumnae by major and in cities around the country. The Alumnae Relations team can help you connect with alumnae in your area. Just contact our office.
  • The Alumnae Relations team works with the Center for Career and Professional Development to connect students with alumnae for training, interviewing, and networking.


Alumnae Association Awards

The following awards recognize the achievements of Stephens women, and the Alumnae Association Board Scholarship honors current and graduating students.


Alumnae Achievement Award

The Alumnae Achievement Award, given annually by Stephens College, recognizes alumnae who have distinguished themselves in their field and their community, and have a steadfast commitment to the Ten Ideals of Stephens. This award is the highest honor bestowed on our alumnae and is presented during Reunion weekend.

Alumnae Association Board (AAB) Scholarship

Each year the Alumnae Association Board (AAB) selects four students to receive the three most prestigious scholarships the Stephens College Alumnae Association bestows upon Stephens students. The scholarships will be awarded to three rising residential students — one sophomore, one junior and one senior. The fourth student must be a graduating senior who will be awarded a $250 award and the honor of being the class speaker for her class’ commencement ceremony in May. Award recipients will be announced during Honors Convocation and invited to have lunch with the AAB during Reunion Weekend.
