At Sierra Nevada College, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations serves to engage alumni, parents, friends, and organizations in supporting the institution’s mission of educating students to be “scholars of and contributors to a sustainable world” —reinforcing an interdisciplinary curriculum that emphasizes four core themes which combine liberal arts, professional preparedness, entrepreneurial thinking, and sustainability.

Guided by the College’s strategic priorities and the leadership of President Lynn Gillette, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations collaborates with the entire College community to support the students, faculty, staff, programs and initiatives that make Sierra Nevada College a world class institution of higher education.
