Hussman School Alumni Board (HSAB)

About the Hussman School Alumni Board

The Hussman School Alumni Board empowers alumni to support the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media today and into the future. Guided by a group of media industry leaders from across the nation, HSAB harnesses the power of a diverse and talented graduate base to support student development, foster alumni connections and encourage giving to reinforce the School’s reputation as one of the nation’s elite programs.

UNC Hussman has three volunteer-driven boards — the Foundation Board, Board of Advisers and Hussman School Alumni Board — that assist in furthering the mission of the school. They share a common goal to raise funds and resources to support the school; raise awareness of the school’s mission, activities and achievements; provide advocacy for the school; and advise the school’s leadership.
