The University of Mary (formerly Mary College) Alumni Committee is the organization's advisory board. It evolved by a process of expansion from a seven member Executive Board to a fifteen-member alumni council in November 1977. In December 1980, the membership was changed from fifteen to twelve, and in September 1991, the by-laws were again changed so that the membership consists of twelve to fifteen members. In 2011, the structure of the council was revised to its current advisory committee status.
The goals of the Alumni Committee are to promote the interest and welfare of the alumni association; to foster the welfare and growth of the University of Mary; and to establish mutually beneficial relations between the university, students, faculty, parents, friends and its alumni.
