Who Is A Member?

Any person who has completed at least one semester at Gannon University or any of its predecessor educational institutions, including Villa Maria College, Gannon College, and Cathedral College, is automatically a lifelong member of the Alumni Association.

There are no dues associated with membership to the Alumni Association.


The Gannon University Alumni Association is governed by the National Alumni Board, a volunteer organization consisting of a Board of voting Directors and non-voting Regional Coordinators who work closely with the Alumni Services Office to promote alumni success; foster personal and professional networking; to communicate Gannon news, events, and priorities to the alumni body; to engage with the University, current and prospective students; and to support the traditions and growth of Gannon University.  Learn more about the National Alumni Board
