Welcome to the Mills College Club of New York!!
We hope that you and your family will remain healthy and safe from the coronavirus.
Due to COVID-19, all our in-person events have been canceled until it is safe once again for us to gather. Although our club events are put on hold, the college is still dealing with many important challenges. The one that is relevant to us alumnae/i is the on-going collaboration between Mills and UC Berkeley.
Please check out this post from the college: https://bit.ly/30vAaJo
The AAMC recently announced a town hall to address some of the questions arising from the June 25 conversation. The following is from the AAMC:
In June President Hillman hosted a videoconference to inform alumnae donors of the College’s response to COVID-19, as well as discuss the possible growth of Mills’ partnership with UC Berkeley. During and after the videoconference many alumnae expressed further questions and concerns regarding the partnership and the College's financial challenges. The AAMC wanted to facilitate an opportunity for alumnae to pose these questions and concerns directly to the administration.
We have gathered your questions for the administration from email, phone conversations, the AAMC Facebook group, and the newly created (and wonderfully active!) Strong Proud All Mills Facebook group. In collaboration with the Office of the President and the Office of Alumnae Relations, the AAMC will host a virtual town hall on September 17, 2020, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm PDT, where your issues will be addressed by representatives from each of these organizations. Keep an eye out for an email invitation coming soon with details about how to register.
We greatly appreciate your sincere engagement, your unrivaled support of your alma mater, and your incisive and nuanced perspectives. We hope you all can make it.
If you do not receive the email invitation, please write to the alumnae office at email@example.com

Some of our Club Members from past events...
The Mills College Club has been in existence since 1919 and we are proud to continue its mission to foster old and create new bonds among Mills College alumnae who live in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We gather for fellowship with each other; raise money for the College (specifically for the Tri-State Scholarship Fund); help with the College's admissions efforts and publicize events related to Mills alumnae and faculty members.
Anyone living in Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York who attended Mills for a semester or more is included in the mailing list for the MCCNY.
Former MCCNY members who have moved away from this area are also welcome as members, as are faculty and staff of the College. These days, except for the mailed invitations to the fall fund-raising event, we keep in touch via e-mail—so it is important for us to know how to reach you this way. Board meetings are held periodically to plan our events; all are welcome at these meetings.
and Margot Mabie, Co-chairs
