Alumni Advisory Board

Formed in November 2013, the Alumni Advisory Board assists the Office of Alumni Relations in the development of valuable partnerships with alumni and friends of Lee University. The purpose of the AAB is to offer direction and leadership to the Alumni Office in the development of the alumni network. Members of the board are also responsible for the expansion and awarding of the Young Alumni Professional Development Grant program.

Distinguished Alumnus of the Year

This award is the highest honor given by the university to alumni and is given to a graduate who is making advancements in his or her career, while also embracing the values that Lee embodies.

Honorary Alumnus of the Year

This award is given when special circumstances warrant. It is presented to a person who is not an alumna or alumnus of Lee University, but who has earned this recognition and honor through loyalty, service and support of the University.

Young Alumni Professional Grant

The Young Alumni Professional Grant program supports alumni participating in initiatives, events, trainings, and projects related to professional development. The grant is open to all Lee University alumni, regardless of academic major or professional experience, so long as the individual is currently employed and within 10 years of graduating from a Lee undergraduate program.

Eddie Christopher (‘13)

Eddie currently works as a data scientist specializing in people analytics for Discover Financial Services. As a graduate student, he used the grant to attend conferences where he received the opportunity to share his own work and connect with other professionals. He says, “The grant helped me at a pivotal time, early in my career. Having the necessary financial support to attend those conferences made for some wonderful experiences, and frankly, it made my peers that did not go to Lee a little jealous of my cool alma mater.”
