Questrom Alum Now Heads the BU Young Alumni Council
As a BU undergraduate, Alexis Redman was a student leader—a resident assistant, a Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground student ambassador, a founding E-board member of the Black Business Student Association, and a leader within Umoja, BU’s Black student union. She had a dual concentration in organizational behavior and operations management at the Questrom School of Business, studied abroad, and worked as an administrative assistant in Alumni Relations and in the Questrom Executive MBA Program.
So when she was asked to join the BU Young Alumni Council (BUYAC) by Alumni Relations in 2019, she thought about all the opportunities she’d had during those four years. “I wanted to give back and continue to stay connected with the University,” says Redman (Questrom’14). She joined the council in 2019; last June, she became chair.
“It’s just a wonderful, amazing group of very accomplished people,” says Redman. “We are all from different backgrounds—the schools we went to, majors, the industries that we work with—and it makes for a very lively conversation. It’s one of those groups where everybody’s opinion counts. I feel privileged to be able to lead this group.”
The council has a mission to engage with, and represent, recent graduates, and it numbers about two dozen alums from nearly all BU schools and colleges. Like Redman, many were campus leaders as students.
