GOLD Advisory Council

The voice of Augustana's young alumni. The Augustana GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) Advisory Council exists to advise and support Augustana on ways to encourage, develop, grow, and sustain involvement and participation from young alumni.

Council members advise the Augustana Office of Alumni Relations on event, promotional and philanthropic ideas, as well as other areas that are of concern to their peers. GOLD hosts social, networking and community service events throughout the year.

The GOLD Advisory Council consists of graduates from the last 10 years and meets on campus twice a year, usually in April and October. If you are interested in joining or would like more information about the council, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at or 605.274.4404, or fill out a GOLD Interest Form.
