    • Mission Statement

      The mission of the College of Graduate Health Studies Alumni Chapter (CGHSAC) is to support the College of Graduate Health Studies (CGHS) and ATSU and to encourage beneficial relationships with the college, university and its alumni.


      The CGHSAC provides opportunities for networking and collaboration between the various college alumni chapters and develops cross-campus and interdisciplinary programs or events to support ATSU including: financial support, recruitment support, activity support, and volunteer efforts.

      CGHSAC will serve as the voice of alumni as it reports on activities and initiatives of each alumni chapter to the ATSU Alumni Association.


      Membership in this Chapter shall consist of all graduates of CGHS and other persons who meet the requirements as prescribed by the Bylaws of the ATSU Alumni Association (ATSUAA) and CGHSAC. Each graduate will be awarded membership in ATSUAA and CGHSAC. This is a lifetime membership.


      The CGHS Alumni Chapter Board shall meet twice each year, with most meetings being conducted virtually, unless otherwise noted. ATSU Alumni Relations will provide administrative support at all meetings.

      If you have questions or need more information, please contact Alumni Relations at or call 866.626.2878, ext. 2307 (toll free).
