About Us


To Inspire, Engage, and Celebrate Alumni to Support Student Success. 


The Fresno State Alumni Association has roots to the first Fresno Normal School graduating class of 1912 and was incorporated in 1940. To date more than 180,000 graduates and thousands of others who have had a Fresno State educational experience, have migrated to every state in the nation and many are located throughout the world. The university maintains database records of more than 200,000 alumni, past students and friends of the university.


The Fresno State Alumni Association is governed by a 30-member board of volunteers (26 voting and 4 non-voting). The policies of the Fresno State Alumni Association are developed by and administered through the Board of Directors. The President of the University, the Vice President for University Advancement, the Executive Director of the Fresno State Alumni Association, and the President of Associated Students, Inc. each hold a liaison non-voting position on the Board of Directors. This Board operates on a committee system which utilizes an Executive Committee to carry out and support the administrative mandates of the Board of Directors. The Executive Committee oversees and ensures proprietary goals and information flows on a daily basis for the entire organization.
