Graduate alumni don’t want the same things as undergrads. Learn how to engage them with specialized programming.
Graduate and professional alumni typically aren’t as engaged with their alma mater as their undergraduate counterparts. But graduate alumni are often highly career-focused with strong connections to classmates, faculty, and mentors. How you can leverage these traits to increase engagement with this population?
Join us online to hear from Mario Peraza at the University of California San Francisco, a graduate-only institution leading the way in health sciences. He’ll show you how he’s used meaningful programming and volunteer opportunities to increase alumni engagement, and you’ll leave with sample programs you can adapt to make your professional and graduate school alumni feel more connected:
- Alumni Weekend: Centering robust 5-year reunion programming around scientific content
- UCSF Connect: Providing virtual networking and mentoring in partnership with the university career center
- UCSF Alumni Advocates: Mobilizing the alumni community as advocates for university priorities at local, state, and federal levels
Who should attend?
