A robust and extensive alumni network that commits to support the institution’s development is the dream of many universities today. This is why the upcoming ACA European Policy Seminar on 19 March will take a close look into the role of alumni, particularly international alumni, in supporting the development of higher education institutions and the host countries. The seminar will discuss questions as:
How exactly can alumni support the development of your institution (marketing, fundraising, student recruitment, career counselling, knowledge transfer, etc.)? What are the innovative online tools proven to be effective in engaging alumni? What are the existing national or European resources that that you can tap into when building up your alumni network? What are other universities doing in alumni relations?
The debate will be spurred by a variety of speakers, coming from the European Commission and the various pan-European alumni associations (ESN, EMA, OCEANS Network, GaragEramus), national agencies (DAAD, Campus France), CASE Europe (Council for Advancement and Support of Education), St. Gallen University, and Funderful - a start-up company specialised in online community crowdfunding.
