Alumni & Friends

MSA Alumni pose with an award

While 1,600+ alumni working across the entire spectrum of sports and entertainment is impressive in its own right, it is the loyalty of alumni and the familial nature of the relationships that truly make our network the #OHIOFamily.

Alumni Advisory Board

The Ohio University SAFM Advisory Board is comprised of 30 alumni members who meet once a year and host quarterly conference calls. These individuals are responsible for providing industry expertise to enhance the strategic direction of the SAFM Program and the Center for Sports Administration. The Advisory Board is divided into three committees:

  • Development
  • Public Relations
  • Recruitment

Each committee is charged to provide information and recommendations back to the Executive Director, who then works to integrate their initiatives, to benefit the current students, prospective students, and alumni.
