Biographical Note for Alumni Association :

Organized on June 5, 1873,1 the Alumni Association held decennial reunions in 18822 and 1892.3 It is a separate corporation promoting the interests of the University as an educational agency and maintaining contact with alumni of the University.4 It is managed by a Board of Directors elected by the regular members of the Association.5 The Association encourages activities of Illini Clubs, solicits alumni support for University activities and arranges class reunions and other functions. On March 11, 1965, the Board authorized a system of Associate Directors for each campus. In 1967 the word "Associate" was dropped from their titles and each is now known as a Campus Director.6
