Plan Aims to Connect Alumni
The IUP Alumni Association Board of Directors and the Office of Alumni Relations recently finalized a strategic plan that maps out how and where the university will connect with alumni in the next several years.
“Most people know that the largest concentration of IUP alumni lives in western Pennsylvania, but many would be surprised how many cities across the country have an IUP presence,” said Mary Morgan, interim director of Alumni Relations. “Alumni are busy people, so our plan outlines a variety of ways we’ll work to engage our diverse alumni populations. Reaching out to alumni in targeted regions will be key in providing opportunities for them to network with each other. In addition, we hope to work with alumni who can provide internships and job opportunities and who can help in recruiting more students to IUP.”
The plan also calls for facilitating reunions for affinity groups, bringing alumni to campus to connect with current students, engaging alumni online, and keeping alumni up to date with the latest IUP news. An overview of the plan may be found on the
Alumni Association website.
