Engaging International Alumni

It is crucial to connect with alumni living abroad as institutions attract a greater number of international students, host more international visitors and projects, and as careers become more global and business more multi-national. These connections open doors to participation, engagement, giving, and stronger international student recruitment. However, beginning or bolstering an international effort can be a daunting and complex task.

Join us online to learn the fundamentals of international alumni engagement:

  • Supporting an international alumni program
  • Understanding different social and philanthropic cultures
  • Developing alumni events that resonate
  • Cultivating volunteer opportunities
  • Measuring the success of your efforts


This online training is designed for alumni relations professionals looking to begin or grow their international alumni engagement programming.

Note: In this training, we will not cover the nuances of region-specific engagement and giving, but we will offer a framework that can be applied to any region.
