Since last fall, the TU Alumni Association has been busy, hosting more than 14 events from coast to coast.

Whether we were toasting young alumni on campus or visiting graduates in Atlanta, California or Florida, one universal truth was evident—alumni have a strong affinity to their alma mater.

Some of them traveled hundreds of miles to reconnect with their friends, demonstrating strong ties to TU no matter where they may now live and work. As president of the alumni association, I want to continue to build and strengthen these alumni bonds. This is a key part of the outreach strategy of the Alumni Association board of directors, which aligns with the university’s strategic plan.

We are coordinating with the TU Career Center as it implements its career and networking platform, Handshake.

Two initiatives already underway are designed to create and facilitate ease of access to the many benefits of being a TU alumnus. We are leveraging technology by upgrading the platform of TU’s Alumni Online Community. This will provide more timely, consistent and efficient communication with our graduates, allowing us to connect with multiple alumni groups based upon profession, culture or ethnicity.

We are also coordinating with the TU Career Center as it implements its career and networking platform, Handshake.
This will assist alumni not just when they are searching for that first job, but throughout their careers.

As president, my goal is for the alumni association to facilitate our outreach efforts locally, regionally and nationally, and continue to engage strategically with various alumni groups. I continue to believe that the key to building long-term relationships with alumni is to connect and engage personally.

So I invite you join us for an upcoming event.

Together we can roar, “Go Tigers!”
