Alumni and Development

Regional Advisory Boards

Regional Advisory Boards (RABs) are one of the many ways that Drake works to meet our alumni where they are today. RABs are made up of alumni that work together to engage other alumni in a community or city through different types of outreach and programming.

Currently, Drake has active RABs in Central Iowa, Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.

If you are interested in becoming more involved with alumni planning in your community, feel free to reach out to the regional advisory board members listed below or contact Ashley Nichols at ashley.nichols@drake.edu.
