Your alumni base is growing every year - now is the time to create a strong alumni relations program that will build a foundation for life-long relations that support the institution.
The Benefits of Alumni Relations
Alumni will be the eyes, the ears, and the voice of the institution as ambassadors and connectors. They will contribute resources to campus life with advice and counsel. Alumni will attract students to the institution and strengthen the career services efforts of your institution.
For the Students, alumni will help your students connect to their next endeavor - to an understanding of the world beyond campus, to a network that establishes a career path, to a better career-life balance, and to a social network for a fulfilling life.
For the Alumni, a robust program of alumni engagement will provide a strong community based on shared experiences and shared values instilled at the institution. It will be a source of life-long learning, a way to give back to the institution, and an opportunity to serve the local and global community under the guidance of the institution.
For the World, alumni will be the educated contributors helping to alleviate poverty, support public health initiatives and address community needs. They can do this most effectively by working with their institution.
