The Alumni Communications Committee's (ACC)  primary functions are facilitating communication among the Alumni Council's (AC) committees, as well as engaging and informing AC's diverse constituencies.  In this regard, ACC researches and recommends best practices and tools for AC communication on an ongoing basis, as determined by the performance of existing communications initiatives.  Working in close collaboration with the Office of Alumni Engagement, ACC also supports said communication through training, guidance, and creation of content.  Finally, ACC keeps the entire alumni body informed of AC achievements and the opportunity to connect through volunteer opportunities led by AC.

The Council uses Teamwork to organize and communicate.
