Location/Date: San Jose, CA, United States 11/08/2018 - 11/08/2018
Event Summary:
As institutions continue to globalize their strategic plans, education providers are motivated to find and engage former students distributed across countries and over continents. “International” or “global” alumni relations is the outreach to, and engagement of, these internationally-located alumni. The purpose of international alumni relations is to leverage the support of this potential group of brand ambassadors. The cumulative effect of this will increase your global brand projection, boost international enrollment and fundraising, and create new employment opportunities for current students and recent graduates. It's about making good use of the powerful resources you already have. This session reviews six value propositions for global alumni relations and encourages participants to prioritize their next steps for engaging an increasingly valuable constituency.
