Kellogg Alumni Council

What We Do

The Kellogg Alumni Council facilitates global connections across the Kellogg alumni community

The purpose of the Kellogg Alumni Council (KAC) is to serve as strategic partners and leaders in catalyzing our global alumni community, a network that vitally connects alumni to one another and the school throughout their lifetime.


KAC members are champions and ambassadors of Kellogg who strengthen and enrich our network. They dedicate valuable time to:

  • Guiding and influencing the alumni engagement strategy by providing direction, feedback and critical resources
  • Creating strong networks in partnership with the school and fellow alumni leaders
  • Fostering a deep sense of affiliation and pride among alumni
  • Helping build Kellogg's presence and reputation worldwide by serving as key extensions of the school
