I have the pleasure of working with 32 dedicated University of Redlands alumni who serve as members of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. Our association was founded in 1912 by visionary alumna Rachel Coolidge Price, Class of 1911, and, more than a century later, we are still honoring her mission to keep U of R alumni engaged with their alma mater.
Our board is increasingly diverse, representing different generations, colleges, and affiliations with the University, to ensure our work is relevant to all our constituencies. I wish to thank our newest board members for their volunteerism:
- Orlando Luis Beltran Jr. ’05 (College of Arts and Sciences), ’10 (School of Education)
- Elara Bowman ’16 (School of Business)
- Taylor Guerrero ’14 (College)
- Jennifer Hayhurst ’98 (College)
- Colin Romer ’18 (College)
- Iyan Sandri ’08 (Johnston Center), ’15 (School of Education)
- Colin Siaw ’10 (School of Business)
Through our committees, we are identifying actionable initiatives in numerous areas meaningful to our alumni population, including regional events, career development, and Greek alumni programs. We recognize that returning to campus is not always a possibility (although we love welcoming you back!), and we are consistently looking for ways to bring Redlands to you.
One easy way to get involved is to nominate a fellow Bulldog for one of our numerous alumni awards. The deadline is December 15, but we hope you submit your nominations at www.redlands.edu/alumniawards today!
I am proud of our Board’s collective efforts to serve U of R alumni, and I look forward to representing you in the coming year.

President, Alumni Association Board of Directors
