Student Alumni Leadership Board
Student Alumni Leadership Board (SALB) members are the official student representatives and volunteers of the KU Alumni Association. SALB supports the KU Alumni Association in its mission to strengthen the University by informing, engaging and mobilizing the KU community. SALB members are the link between past, present and future Jayhawks, and represent the University at various functions throughout the year. Members also facilitate spirit functions, serve as campus ambassadors and organize community service projects.
