Mortar Board Alumni Association

On college campuses around the country, Mortar Board recognizes the achievements of outstanding scholar-servant-leaders and brings them together to provide a high-impact capstone experience. We believe that tradition should extend beyond the collegiate experience to Mortar Board’s 300,000+ alumni. 

Continuing the Mortar Board legacy past graduation

The Mortar Board Alumni Association (MBAA) allows Mortar Boards to affirm their commitment to our Society while also providing them with a vibrant community in which to engage.

The Mortar Board Alumni Association was launched with 108 Charter Members at the Launching our Legacy Luncheon, part of the 2012 Mortar Board National Conference, in Chicago on July 21.

You can take advantage of membership in the MBAA annually or with a lifetime commitment.

Connecting alumni across the globe

You have the opportunity to join this select group of talented and intergenerational Mortar Boards. MBAA members range in age from 20-something to 90-something. These alumni represent endless occupations and demographics. From teachers, doctors, lawyers, parents, grandparents, executives, philanthropists, retirees, first-time professionals, community leaders and volunteers, they are as versatile and diverse as Mortar Board itself.

Join the MBAA

Why you should join

Alumni of Mortar Board can retain their connection with the organization through an annual or lifetime membership in the MBAA. Membership is open to all initiated Mortar Board members once they have left college – either by graduation or departure from an undergraduate degree program. The MBAA replaces the former alumni sustaining membership program. Previous lifetime alumni sustaining members were grandfathered into the MBAA as lifetime members.
