Alumni Director Letter

Elizabeth ValenteDear NDNU/CND Alums!

It is a pleasure to offer you this source of information for alumni happenings and other alumni-related matters. Here you can check on upcoming alumni events (Homecoming, 50-Year Reunion, Infinity Events, etc.) chapter activities, find old friends, learn of exciting alumni travel opportunities and find out how to get involved or make a donation.

It is our goal to encourage and foster lifelong alumni participation, involvement and commitment. Over the next several months and years it will be the goal of the Office of Alumni Relations to strengthen the bond between NDNU and our alumni; to create programs which match the interests and needs of the alumni; to maintain and build upon the positive relationships we have with our more seasoned alumni; to increase the participation, involvement and communication with our younger alumni; and to continue to serve as the primary communications link between the university and its alumni.

The Office of Alumni Relations is determined to keep the communication channels open to all alums. By using social networking tools, like Facebook and LinkedIn, to further involve and inform the school's alumni base, the Office has created the Notre Dame de Namur University/CND Alumni Association Facebook page.

We are also focusing on strengthening the alumni regional network. In the past few months the university has organized events in Chicago, Rhode Island and Los Angeles to reconnect with alumni. The focus is to create and strengthen opportunities for current students to engage alumni.

Recently, you've probably received the Alumni Career Survey. The Offices of Alumni Relations and Career Services want to know where you've landed since graduation. The data compiled will be used to assess academic programs and services at NDNU. We are also working on creating a mentor/mentee program to link students with alumni in certain practice areas.

Please stay in touch with us! It is a constant challenge to keep our alumni records updated and accurate data is vital to our success. So if you've moved, have a new phone number or email address, drop us a line and let us update your file. Send us a Class Note if you had a job change, promotion, marriage, birth and if you've published. Have an interesting story to tell? Email us!

We hope that you will stay connected and involved with this ever-growing institution. Our staff is here to help you in any way! If you have questions or need more information about any alumni happenings, have suggestions or new ideas, interested in forming a new alumni chapter, please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you soon.
