Upon review of the recent CDC and local and State Health Department updates, and our campus vaccination and positivity rates, the College will make the following policy changes effective immediately:

  • Masks are optional except when requested by faculty and staff in classrooms, offices, and meeting spaces.  Masks may still be required for large events.
  • Employees, students, and visitors may choose to wear a mask at any time. 

If you have any suggestions, please send an email to alumni@hanover.edu.  


Greetings from your beloved alma mater, Hanover College!  The Office of Alumni Relations is the primary communications link between the College and our alumni.  It is our goal to encourage and foster lifelong alumni participation, involvement, and commitment.

Over the next several months and years, it will be our goal to strengthen the bond between the College and our alumni; to create programs which match the interests and needs of the alumni; to maintain and build upon the positive relationships we have with our more seasoned alumni; to increase the participation, involvement, and communication with our younger alumni; to continue to serve as the primary communications link between the College and its alumni.  Achieving these goals will require a tremendous team effort, and it will be important to enlist the assistance of College administration, friends of the College, and of course...The Alumni!

I recognize, acknowledge, and embrace our alumni as vital stakeholders in the advancement of the College.  Therefore, I encourage all alumni to participate in and support the programs, services, and numerous campus activities and events. Please stay connected through involvement and participation in the Hanover College Alumni Association.  I also encourage each alumnus and friend of the College to be ambassadors for Hanover in their respective communities by assisting with the recruitment of students and by supporting programs via your time, talent, and treasures.

I welcome you as a part of the Hanover College Alumni family and hope to see you back on campus soon, and often!  I encourage you to stay connected and involved with our ever-growing college.  Our staff is here to help you in any way.  If you have any questions or need more information about Hanover College or any alumni happenings, have suggestions or new ideas, please feel free to contact me.
