Who We Are

All Rutgers University–New Brunswick undergraduate students are invited to join the Scarlet Council, a group of student leaders who know what it means to be scarlet and who are excited to develop new opportunities that connect students and alumni. By planning and being a part of social and professional development events, leaders of Scarlet Council create long-lasting relationships with each other, the university, and a vast alumni network.


To inspire a student commitment to lifelong engagement with the university.


  1. Increase awareness of the Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA)
  2. Provide students with access to the university’s vast alumni network
  3. Serve as liaisons to alumni on behalf of the current student body
  4. Inspire lifelong commitments within students and foster engagement in the life of the university

What is the RUAA?

The minute you graduate from Rutgers, you belong to the Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA), a powerful network of more than 500,000 Rutgers graduates! Membership is free for life and includes access to an amazing array of national, local, and university benefits. Joining the Scarlet Council will help you start your lifelong connection to Rutgers the moment you step onto campus.


The Council for Advancement and Support of Education and Affiliated Student Advancement Programs (CASE ASAP) comprises student alumni associations, student foundations, and similar organizations at more than 300 CASE member institutions. Its goal is to foster and enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement—from alumni relations and communications to fundraising, marketing, and related areas.
