BATON ROUGE – Joe Carvalhido, vice president of advancement at the LSU Alumni Association, will assume presidency of the organization on Jan. 16 when Gordon Monk steps down after four years of service. 

Carvalhido joined the association in 2021. He was previously vice president of operations and services at the Tiger Athletic Foundation, or TAF, where he was also director of operations and services and assistant director of marketing during his more than 13 years of service. Prior to joining TAF, he was director of basketball operations for LSU Women’s Basketball. 

“I look forward to working with and supporting my fellow staff members to broaden and strengthen the Association’s legacy,” Carvalhido said. “We have LSU’s best interests at heart, and I am indeed fortunate to have the opportunity to serve the university in this capacity.” 

Monk joined the association following his retirement from the Louisiana Legislative Fiscal Office after 35 years of service. 

“After nearly 40 years of service to the state and the university, I look forward to my ‘second retirement’ to spend time with my family,” Monk said. “It has been an honor to serve my fellow alumni, as well as faculty, staff and students. It was most rewarding, and I will continue to support efforts to grow and strengthen the association’s excellent programs.”
