Top 5 Reasons to Stay Connected to SMC

By Chris Carter, Associate Director of Alumni Relations

One of the greatest challenges for many colleges is alumni engagement.

Staying connected to Saint Mary’s can be rewarding for both an alum and the institution in many ways. The vitality of the College relies on the goodwill of its current and past constituents, not just financially, but also in contributing to the mission by advising, teaching, working for and supporting an environment where students can grow academically, socially and spiritually.

Building Relationships

Aumni Relations has been developing events designed to foster relationships between alumni and the College, and working to bring SMC to alumni through an aggressive chapter development program.

Those efforts were boosted by the more than 2,200 alums who completed the alumni survey that was e-mailed in January. Check out the story in this issue, and learn more online at www.stmarys-ca.edu/institutional-research/alumni-surveys. The survey will help shape SMC’s strategic plan.
