This Retreat is being developed by Black alumni leaders to help us unpack new opportunities, examine trends, and share best practices with each other.
Student leaders are the core of our work, and aligning Black alumni with current Black students is a mission-oriented goal. This retreat, with its online components, will offer Black alumni associations the unique opportunity to work side by side with Black student leaders to advance progress both on campus and beyond.
Alumni association leaders have an important responsibility in laying the foundation for continued success, innovation, and growth of their alumni base. Instilling a sense of pride, spirit, and excitement is central to the legacy of your work, and this conference serves as a tool in leadership development, strategic planning, and collaborative engagement with peers from across multiple universities.
Professionals in diversity set the vision for inclusion, access, and equity for black students and alumni. This conference stimulates a substantial conversation with black alumni across universities, which ultimately will enhance how you shape the educational journey both on campus and beyond.
Faculty and staff are the important assets that a college or university can offer to students, as they inspire a lifetime of learning. They also influence engagement levels for alumni, which impact their potential and willingness to give back. The unique dialogue at this conference will maximize and uplift the leadership experience for you, the learning experience for students, and the lifelong impact for alumni.
Dialogue at this conference will address the changing dynamics and opportunities in higher education and the post secondary experience. As the conference sessions explore innovative ideas, it is imperative that this work be informed by you, the talented and dedicated professionals in higher education that shape experiences for students and alumni.
