The Minneapolis College of Art and Design Alumni Relations Office is guided by the volunteers of the MCAD Alumni Association Board of Directors.

The alumni association is a resource for all MCAD alumni, offering benefits as well as gatherings and networking opportunities that connect alumni with one another and the college.

MCAD considers every former student who has completed at least one semester at MCAD a member of the alumni association.
