Welcome to The Alumni Connection!

Welcome to the first issue of
The Alumni Connection online
One of the many goals of the Distance Alumni Board is to increase engagement with distance education alumni in a variety of ways. While you'll continue to receive The Pioneer Connection magazine, we wanted to create a quarterly e-newsletter with easily accessible information
to keep you up-to-date on alumni-related news, events, and resources.

We hope to see the newsletter grow to become a useful tool for all our alumni. Additionally, we hope this newsletter will provide you with the opportunity to connect with other UW-Platteville Online alums and to share your experiences. If you have ideas for
an interesting story or a new feature, reach out and let us know. This is your newsletter, and we want your input!
I hope you enjoy the first issue and join the conversation in the future. And remember, as Chancellor Shields says, "Everyday is a great day to be a Pioneer!"
Nice to meet you...

"I decided to get involved with the Alumni Board as a way to give back to the school that has given me so much and to provide a pathway for others to participate in the ongoing process of improving the distance learning experience."
Send us your ideas!
