Building Upon Student Experience in Alumni Practice

Thursday, November 14
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Constellation C

This presentation will draw on experience of alumni programming at the University of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Department of State Critical Language Scholarship Program to provide attendees with ideas for bolstering both their alumni and current student support. Topics covered will include: discussing mission and culture of an organization, office, or institution and how that applies to alumni engagement; how alumni engagement programs can bolster meaningful support for current students while providing opportunities for continued learning and professional development for returnees; and how independent alumni communities can fit into the puzzle of alumni support.
