Rabbinical Alumni Association: Mission Statement

The mission of the Rabbinical Alumni Association (RAA) is to create a nurturing community amongst the alumni; to strengthen the connection between the alumni and the College-Institute; and to create and sustain initiatives that serve the on-going needs of both the alumni and the College-Institute.

In order to fulfill this mission, the RAA creates community by providing opportunities to keep alumni informed about what is going on at the College-Institute and in the lives of fellow alumni.  The RAA provides continuing education and professional learning opportunities for its members.  The RAA serves the College-Institute in various ways, including engaging in development efforts and encouraging and assisting alumni in identifying and recruiting candidates interested in entering the rabbinate and other College-Institute programs.  The RAA builds connections with current College-Institute students in anticipation of  including them in the alumni community.  The RAA collaborates with the administration, faculty and Council of Alumni Associations to accomplish this mission.
