Working with Student Affairs to Strengthen Alumni Relations

Recorded On: 11/05/2019


The office of student affairs (also called student life) can be a key partner for alumni relations programs. Not only can it offer information and insights related to the characteristics, needs, and experiences of current students, it can also provide valuable access to important administrators, student leaders, and campus activities. Strong collaboration also paves the way for alumni to engage in the life of the institution, take advantage of volunteer opportunities, and strengthen personal connections and affinity.
