Alumni Connections:
May 2010
Jen HaneDear ,
It's been an exciting year in the Office of Alumni Relations, and I'd like to thank all of you for your role in everything we've been able to achieve. Your participation has breathed new life into the Alumni and Friends Association. I'm so excited to begin planning activities for next year and to see the trend of increased involvement continue.
For those of you who completed a survey at one of our special events, you'll be happy to know that we're working hard to apply your feedback:
  • We're continuing Roar on the Road in a variety of areas throughout the country, so hopefully we'll be headed to your area soon.
  • We'll be launching a new communication platform later this summer that will allow you to contact former classmates, upload your resume, and share photos of your family. I'll be in touch with additional information soon.
  • Based on your feedback, we know you're interested in hearing from our faculty. Next fall, I'll be contacting you with a variety of new opportunities to hear lectures and participate in special events.
  • We're still seeking alumni volunteers willing to serve as volunteer mentors, recruiters, and advocates in a number of areas. If you're interested in enhancing your involvement, let me know.
Thank you again for all of you've done this year to support UCCS - we couldn't make it without you!
