COA Alumni Association

The College of the Atlantic Alumni Association was founded in 1982 to support College of the Atlantic and promote communication between the college and its alumni as well as among its members. We are proud to have alumni extending the COA community around the globe. Every individual that has ever graduated from or attended classes at COA is considered an alumnus/a and can be a part of the Alumni Association.

Alumni Association Governing Board

The Alumni Association Governing Board meets quarterly. The Governing Board facilitates the mission and objectives of the Alumni Association. We organize local alumni events, assist with fund-raising efforts, work to improve alumni communication services and develop new ways to serve and engage our alumni. We also introduce COA seniors and students to life as Human Ecologists after COA by inviting them to events and introducing them to the larger alumni community.
