Meet the Campus Philly Board
As a nonprofit organization, Campus Philly relies on our incredible board members to help us carry out our mission: fueling inclusive, economic growth by empowering diverse college students and recent graduates to explore, live, and work in Greater Philadelphia.
To that end, Campus Philly is proud to be supported by 14 engaged board members. As a thank you to their commitment to Campus Philly, we are launching a series highlighting the success of our board members in the region—and beyond.
Each month, Campus Philly will spotlight two members of our board and share more about their professional experience, favorite things to do in Philly, and some fun college-throwbacks.
