The RFG Alumni Council was established to foster a vibrant, connected, inclusive corps of alumni no matter where you live or work.
Annually fellows elect a representative from each of the participating universities, and a president who serves a term of one to two years (as their time commitment allows). From among the six elected individuals, officers are designated for positions of vice president, treasurer, chair of communications, chair of events, or other positions as the Alumni Council deems useful.
The current officers are:
Jessica Gottesman, President
Edith Yu, Vice President
Melia Ungson, Secretary
Patricia Weng, Treasurer and Professional Development Chair
Samantha Stein, Internships & Careers Chair
Jill Maloney, Social Chair
