Executive Biography

Scott Atwell has served as President and CEO of the FSU Alumni Association since 2008, where he has grown the budget by $1 million and expanded recognition programs, board initiatives and communications platforms for the university’s more than 300,000 alumni. A communicator by training, Atwell launched FSU’s flagship publication, VIRES magazine, as part of the association’s centennial celebration in 2009, and has since added a quarterly e-newsletter called Alumin@tion, featuring a video news recap and variable data based on the recipient’s academic discipline and zip code. As part of a young alumni initiative, Atwell added a new awards program for graduates under the age of 30, while expanding and enhancing the association’s other recognition programs. Atwell championed a more transparent process for board selection and voting, resulting in vibrant and influential volunteer leadership for the organization. Atwell holds a degree from the University of Miami and is enrolled in FSU’s graduate program in higher education.
