The mission of the College of Public Health (COPH) Alumni Council is to encourage the lifelong stewardship and participation of its members, to affirm the mission, vision, and values of the University, and to support current and future COPH students and alumni through mentoring relationships, professional networking, and fundraising efforts for the University and the College of Public Health.

The alumni council is open to all graduates of the college and the council meets three times per year. The work of the alumni council is made possible through gifts to the COPH Innovation Fund, which provides leadership programming for students, helps acquire innovative technology, funds alumni and student programming, and more. In addition, the fund supports the people and programs of the UNMC Alumni Association.
