The experience that alumni have in the first several years after graduation can have a profound influence on their relationship with their alma mater for the rest of their life. When recent graduates feel welcomed and are informed about the benefits of belonging to the alumni community, they’re more likely to become engaged and stay engaged. What’s more, when they understand the importance and impact of giving back, they’re apt to support the institution financially—now and in the future.
Join us on March 21st for a one-day interactive online learning experience where you will hear from subject matter experts and engage in focused small-group discussions with peers.
Participants will have an opportunity to:
Discover the latest trends and current best practices in young alumni giving
Meet and get to know colleagues from other institutions
