Alumni Association Strategic Plan

The Alumni Association is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to bring our mission forward into the lives of current students and alumni.


The mission of the Alumni Association is to foster the lifelong involvement of alumni with the University in support of its mission to be a top-tier national Catholic research university in the Marianist tradition.

Value Proposition

The alumni association board is working to define the value of an education at UD and the value of being an alum. To support this work we’ve brainstormed 5 key areas that would add value and focused our work on the following initiatives.

Career Connections

This committee’s focus is on connecting alumni to students for internship and job opportunities. The short term goal will be to pilot programs in three geographic areas based on job growth and market trends. In the long term, we strive to connect students and alumni in meaningful ways as they enter the job market or change careers.

Education for Life

This committee is focused on researching other institutions; determine best practice and topics, or series of topics, to provide to UD alumni. Committee members will strive to use the expertise of alumni to support this initiative and provide something for each life stage. Decisions will be made on how these programs will be delivered and promoted.

Enrollment Connections

The focus for this committee is to explore opportunities to involve alumni in the recruitment process. Conversations with Enrollment staff are well underway and the process has been outlined. The committee will need to research other institutions for best practices and work with Enrollment to find what works at UD. The goals of this committee will be determined after more conversation and will need to be aligned with the goals of the Vice President of Enrollment.

Life After College

This committee reviewed the life after college handbook produced by Cap & Compass (used by other institutions), discussed options for UD and determined a digital resource would be best for our alumni. The concept of “city guides” was presented and in collaboration with the Welcome to Alumni Communities committee produced updated alumni community webpages.

Welcome to Alumni Communities

This committee created a process to welcome alumni into the alumni communities. They considered recent graduates and those alumni who move from one community to another. It was determined that an automated email with specific information related to the community is the best plan of action.
