AlumnI Board


The Alumni Board serves to connect Cap and Gown alumnae with each other and the Stanford community. This includes hosting events, supporting mentorship and communicating Cap and Gown news to members. The Alumni Board meets four times a year and works with the Students Board in planning and hosting Cap and Gown events. It also manages Cap and Gown’s scholarship funds and dues collection. If you are interested in joining the board or have any questions, please contact us.

Since 2005, Bay Area Cap and Gown women who graduated in the past ten years have met over friendly, casual meals.  Come share your experiences in the working world, meet interesting women, and reunite with old Cap and Gown friends at a Young Alumni event.

We would like to expand our Young Alumni program within and beyond the Bay Area and we need your help!   If you have suggestions for future Young Alumni events or would like to organize an event, please send an email to
