Santa Clara Alumni Association
The Year in Review
If you read this page in the summer issue of Santa Clara Magazine, you may remember that our Association has been busy over the past year developing a strategic plan. The purpose of this initiative has been to better understand our strengths and weaknesses, while also identifying opportunities to serve you more completely.
To achieve these objectives, we have hosted focus groups, benchmarked best practices with leading universities around the country, and conducted an online survey of alumni attitudes and interests.
One finding from the survey that really stands out is that most of you are not aware of the many services and benefits provided through the Alumni Association. Our objective is to develop lifelong relationships between you and other alumni, as well as the University. And we do that each year by offering over 200 events and programs around the country. But clearly, we're not as effective as we could be in letting you know all that's available.
Did you know…?
In the past year alone, the SCU Alumni Association:
That's just a small sampling of the many events and activities we offer each year. As we move forward with our strategic planning efforts, we will continue to explore new ways for you to reconnect with SCU and your fellow Broncos. As always, you can find out what's going on in your city or on campus by visiting our Web site at www.scu.edu/alumni.
If you have ideas for new outings or would like to suggest ways to engage more of your classmates, please let us know. You may call the Alumni Office at 408-554-6800, or e-mail us at AlumUpdate@scu.edu. We'd love to hear from you!
It's going to be an exciting year and I hope to see you back on campus or at an alumni event in your area soon!
