3. CAP Alumni Advisory Council: Connect with fellow alumni

The goal of the CAP Alumni Advisory Council is to provide a space for Wave-Makers to connect and build community with one another.

The group consists of councils leads and members that come together once a month to reflect, develop, and plan future ways to engage. 

This year, the Council participated in a 3-part series of Virtual Healing Hikes, assisted with the development of this Wave-Maker Network Newsletter, and collaborated on ways to engage students and alumni.  

A huge appreciation to our 2021-2022 CAP Alumni Advisory council leads and members:
