About the AADC

Our Powerful Alumnae Sisterhood

I have the honor, together with the AADC Board of Directors and phenomenal staff, of leading an amazing organization whose volunteer leadership are helping shape a strong future for our alumnae community.  The AADC has so much to share.

I hope to see you at our events and programs this spring and encourage you to visit our events page for more information and for online registration. Highlights include the upcoming Zagoren Lecture on March 21, where we will welcome Patricia Teffenhart ’01. In April, we host the Spring Alumnae Council Meeting followed the Founders Day Luncheon where we will kickoff the AADC’s 95th anniversary and induct distinguished alumnae into the AADC Society of Excellence. Also in April, we express our gratitude for the generosity of alumnae and friends at An Evening to Honor AADC Benefactors.

Throughout the year alumnae also enjoy our various AADC Regional Connection Group gatherings and renew their interest in our affinity groups such as the AADC Black Alumnae Network and the AADC Young Alumnae Network.

Alumnae Reunion Weekend will be held June 2-3, with our theme, “Celebrating Sisterhood.” We honor special milestone reunion classes of the 2s and 7s and the Class of 1967 who mark their Vanguard 50th Reunion and will be inducted into the Vanguard Fifty Society during the festivities. In addition to the amazing Milestone Classes Parade at Convocation and a wonderful assortment of Saturday afternoon activities, the AADC Alumnae Awards will be presented.

These exciting events are a celebration of all that the AADC does today,  helping engage alumnae and provide meaningful programs and connections.

I encourage you to come back home, walk across campus once again, experience the energy and be a part of the bright future of your alumnae organization.
