Mission

The Sweet Briar College Alumnae Alliance fosters and sustains Sweet Briar’s vibrant learning environment for women. The Alumnae Alliance promotes programs and services that enhance strong bonds of fellowship, mentorship and vision. It supports Sweet Briar as an institution dedicated in perpetuity to producing extraordinary scholars and leaders who serve the needs of a contemporary world.

The Alumnae Alliance Council has a working relationship with the alumnae relations and development office, assisting with and augmenting special projects and initiatives to further the operational needs of the College. As appropriate, the alumnae relations and development office seeks input and involvement from the Alumnae Alliance Council on strategic planning projects.
