Constituency and Geo-Region Representatives are members of the Alumni Association Board of Directors with a specific role. They are your resource for information about LSSU, your area of interest, and/or your geographic area. Academic constituency reps are your resource by academic major. Other constituency reps are organized by area of interest while on campus (varsity athletics) or off (legislative advocacy by alumni is always needed and appreciated). If anyone would like to contact any of these Constituency Representatives or Geographic Representatives, please email or call 906-635-6219 and the Alumni Office will be happy to put you in touch with the appropriate representative.

Whether you are a recent graduate heading out beyond northern Michigan for the first time, or you’ve been out for awhile longer and are now re-locating, check our list of geo-region reps for one in your new area. These volunteers will help you with information about your new location: Assistance in finding housing, recommendations on local doctors and insurance agents, information on schools, shopping and recreational opportunities… and of course, tips for staying in touch with LSSU. Email and we’ll put you in touch with an alumni rep in your area.
