All About Alumni

This Alumni SIG will be an informal guided forum discussion where participants will have the opportunity to share experiences, ideas, case studies and knowledge.

It will provide a unique opportunity to come together to discuss areas of high interest for those working in the field of Alumni. 


Engaging Young Alumni 

  • Social media – where are they engaging?
  • Events – what social events do they enjoy?
  • Communication and connecting – Is email still as relevant now? Is Facebook declining? Is there a better way to go? Instagram, What’sApp, SMS, LinkedIn
  • Do we need to segment engagement further or differently/vertically such as arts, sciences, humanities etc?
  • Tips to track and update emails addresses
  • Reunions – discussion around relevance of 1 and 5 year reunions and what in between (on or off school campus)

Mentoring Programs

  • Connecting alumni through mentoring – Through digital platforms? Create your own database? How do these programs best work? 

Alumni and Fundraising

  • How do schools structure Alumni fundraising – what is working well, what needs help?

Surveying Alumni 

  • External companies? Case studies, benchmarking, and school-based surveys.
