The H&SS Dean’s Circle consists of a prestigious group of alumni and friends who are willing to act as leaders in securing the College’s future. Membership includes an invitation to the annual Dean’s Circle dinner, a commemorative lapel pin, and subscriptions to the College’s print and electronic publications.
