The POWER of COMMUNITY

Engaging our alumni

Memorial University recently released its new Alumni Engagement Strategy for the entire university. We want to bring our alumni closer to the university and provide opportunities for collaborative growth. We will be establishing an alumni engagement plan that will align with Memorial University’s strategy while giving us the flexibility to meet our alumni’s specific needs and expectations, building on the traditions and recognizing the foundation of our campus.

Bring our alumni closer to the university and provide opportunities for collaborative growth
We have been engaging with our alumni in the past year by connecting them with our campus events and initiatives such as our strategic planning consultations; connecting with our new graduates following spring convocation 2018 and the recently completed “Lost Alumni Campaign” that saw almost 400 alumni update their contact information – about 11% of our total alumni population

 

Alumna Katrina Basha was the recipient of the first Student of the Year Award (now the Sullivan Cup) as a student here in the 1970s

The highlight of this summer will be the all-programs, all-years reunion and community celebration that will take place from July 18-23, 2019, as part of the Corner Brook Come Home Year celebrations. Events will include campus tours, the unveiling of the soldier sculpture at the Danger Tree site, a trip to Cow Head for the Gros Morne Theatre Festival, an observatory night, a Western Regional School of Nursing alumni reception and many more events. Most of these events will be free and will provide a great opportunity for our alumni to reconnect, revisit the campus and form new connections to Grenfell Campus.  All faculty, staff, students, retirees, alumni and friends are welcome to attend.
