Founded in 2010, the volunteers of the Gophers of the Last Decade (GOLD) Board coordinates engagement efforts to deepen the connections that young alumni not only have to one another, but the Carlson School alumni society as a whole. The Board accomplishes this mission by supporting the distribution of marketing messages, coordinating young alumni networking events, and hosting a range of events that include professional development events for both students and young alumni and civic engagement events that integrate additional members of the Carlson School community.
Involvement with GOLD is open to all University of Minnesota alumni who have either graduated from the Carlson School of Management undergraduate program or taken Carlson School courses while earning their undergraduate degree.
